    Get Out the Vote!

    Image result for Have you voted

    There are 65 days until the midterm elections on November 6, 2018 as of today 1st of September 2018. The results of this year’s midterm elections will be enormously important — not just in shaping the future of Donald Trump’s presidency. In shaping the American political landscape for a great many years to come. Depending on how well Democrats do, we could kill the Republican legislative agenda in Congress, gain new powers to investigate the Trump administration, get the ability to block Trump’s nominees from being confirmed, pass new liberal state laws in many parts of the country and win many offices with power over the 2021 redistricting process. If Democrats do poorly, we will feel the consequences of our failure for generations to come. With the announcement of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, the importance of voting increases exponentially!

    If you have not requested your ballot yet, please don’t wait any longer. Request your ballot at http://www.votefromabroad.org/. If you think you are already registered to vote, please verify your registration at http://iwillvote.com/. You should share both websites with your left leaning friends, family and help make sure they are registered to vote too. 

    Please come and get involved. Check our event page and join us!

    Eine Welt Haus in München, Germany

    Monthly Meeting – Special Guest Speaker Claudia Clark, Author of My Partner, My Friend: The Relationship between U.S President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel

    Local member Claudia Clark will be giving a book talk on her forthcoming book My Partner, My Friend. The book explores how the relationship between President Barack Obama and Dr. Angela Merkel evolved from one of extreme apprehension to one of deep friendship and a partnership that captivated the world. Organizations such as NATO, and G7 and G20 Summits have been formed to enable world leaders of allied nations to come together to discuss problems that affect the global environment and offer diplomatic solutions. My Partner, My Friend explains why Pres. Barack Obama’s and Dr. Angela Merkel’s partnership is so important to today’s world leaders – the transformation of their relationship exemplifies how it is possible for political adversaries to establish a bond of trust, respect, and even friendship.
