Welcome to the Munich and Southern Bavaria Chapter of Democrats Abroad (DA)!

DA Munich and Southern Bavaria is a chapter of DA Germany, serving as part of the official overseas arm of the Democratic Party, USA. Comprising an area that includes all of the German postal codes starting with 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86 and 87, the DA Munich and Southern Bavaria covers the entire alpine region of Bavaria and includes the cities of Munich, Augsburg, Ingolstadt, Starnberg, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Kempten, Landsberg and all of the rural areas in between! We are already over a 2,000 members strong and we look forward to collaborating with you as we build a community of Americans living in our area, engage with the US political process, and empower voters for important elections in the US. To achieve these aims we organize regular meetings and events in support of uniting with one another to amplify our voices calling for democratic principals in the US.  These activities include rallies/protests/marches, voter registration drives, volunteering in our communities, social gatherings and much more! We invite you to join our chapter to receive email updates and to frequently check our pages for new events.

    March for Reproductive Rights - Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021, 11AM

    We must MOBILIZE and DEFEND our Reproductive Rights!

    Join the Munich chapter of Democrats Abroad and let your voice be heard to defend the reproductive rights of women across the USA!


    • We will meet at 11:00 AM across Von-der-Tann-Str. from the US Consulate in Munich
    • We begin marching at 12:00 PM down Maximilianstr., ending at the Maximilianeum.
    • Please be aware of Democrat Abroad Germany's "3G" policy: everyone attending must be prepared to show proof of being fully vaccinated, recovered, or a negative test from the previous 48 hours for Covid.
    • Please also wear FFP-2 or surgical masks and keep 1.5 meters distance from everyone, so that we can all stay safe!


    Why March?

    Rarely has any movement been the result of one lone voice. Strength in numbers reflects the urgency and desire for change, and marches (whether in person or virtually) present the opportunity for people to come together and display that desire in solidarity.

    Join the Women’s March on October 2nd and stand in solidarity with those who will be marching across the US, to protect and defend reproductive rights. Bring your signs and make it clear how you feel about this important issue. This is a peaceful demonstration.
