    DAG-Stuttgart June 2021 Newsletter

     

    Happy June everyone! Hopefully you had a pleasant Pentecost vacation. With more people getting vaccinated in Germany, traveling and meeting with others may soon be normal again!

     

    This month is dedicated to our LGBTQ community. In the words of Harvey Milk, “Hope will never be silent.” There are many organisations dedicated to helping, protecting and defending our brothers and sisters of the LGBTQ community. Here are just a few:

    1. Rainbow Railroad: the namesake is the Underground Railroad. This organization is dedicated to helping people escape state-sponsored violence
    2. Trevor Project: provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning young people under 25
    3. Equality Federation: amplifies the power of the state-based LGBTQ movement by working to advance workplace fairness, family recognition, defeating HIV criminalization laws, etc.;
    4. Transgender Law Center: advocates self-determination for all people and is committed to racial justice, helping transgender individuals thrive, inform and empower

     

    There is a treasure trove of great literature for a young and older audience. Some of the many books worth reading are:

    1. “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda” by Becky Albertalli
    2. “Juliet Takes a Breath” by Gabby Rivera
    3. “Two Boys Kissing” by David Levithan
    4. “Symptoms of Being Human” by Jeff Garvin
    5. “Felix Ever After” by Kacen Callender

     

    Some of the highlights being held by DAG this month:

    Texans Abroad - Ann Richards’ Global Birthday Celebration

    Ann Richards’ Global Birthday Celebration

    Texas has its own “45” – and she was a force of nature! Governor Ann Richards was the last Democratic governor of the Lone Star State, larger-than-life and down-to-earth. She was a champion of women, children, people of color and working-class people. Her sharp wit was legendary.

    Join Texans Abroad as we celebrate her life and legacy with a global live stream featuring Official Musician of Texas Sara Hickman, Texas Poet Laureate Emmy Pérez, Dr. Eliz Markowitz, Jana Lynne Sanchez and many more. 

    We will get caught up on the good, the bad, and the ugly at the 87th Texas Legislature and preview the upcoming special session on redistricting. Most importantly, you will find out how you can help prepare for the 2022 midterm elections – many hands make light work and there’s work a-plenty to break the GOP stranglehold on Texas and in D.C.

    As part of the global celebration, we are asking you to show your love for Ann by submitting a photo of yourself at a local landmark – wherever in the world you are, whether it’s a far-flung village or a booming metropolis. We’ve created a birthday sign for you to download and print. All you need to do is fill in your location, snap a photo  for our photo collage and submit it using this FORM or to the email address below. It’s that easy! ***Deadline: August 15.

    All democracy-loving folks are welcome to attend! You don’t need to be a Texan to enjoy the show. Donations are optional, but we recommend a contribution of $20.22 to help us reach voters across the globe in the coming Midterms!

    Please let us know if you have any questions or would like to be involved. You can reach us at [email protected] and be sure to follow us on Twitter @TXAbroad

    “I was tested by fire, and the fire lost.” – Ann Richards (1933-2006)
