Wiesbaden-Mainz Region

Welcome to the Party! Wiesbaden-Mainz Region In Motion!

 

Welcome to the homepage of the Wiesbaden-Mainz Region chapter of Democrats Abroad Germany. Our chapter was established on January 18, 2013, after meeting regularly for over one year as a Frankfurt precinct. See Chapter Leadership history here.

The Wiesbaden-Mainz Region Chapter represents Americans living in the cities of Mainz and Wiesbaden, but also the Mainz-Bingen Kreis (district), Rheingau-Taunus-Kreis and Main-Taunus-Kreis in the U.S. Democratic Party.

Help us get out the vote (GOTV)! We have lots of opportunities to volunteer. You can sign up here.

Every election and every vote counts! Have you requested your absentee ballot for this year's election? If not, please request it now.

Since the pandemic, we have been meeting online during the winter. You can check our events page for the dates and times of our meetings. Before the pandemic, we usually met every third Friday of the month at 7:30 PM in Wiesbaden in “Der Andechser im Ratskeller”, Schloßplatz 6, 65183 Wiesbaden. Hopefully, we can start meeting again in person during the warm weather.

Thanks and we hope you join us,

    Things to Do to Help Get Out the Vote:

    Voting - Request your absentee ballot today at https://www.votefromabroad.org/

    Postcarding

    Help us get out the vote. Please Donate.

    💻 Phone banking is one of the easiest and most effective ways for us to mobilize fellow Democrats around the globe. In 2020, DA callers made over 600,000 calls! Find out more.

    Calls are paid for by DA, so no expenses will be put on the callers themselves. The recipients are all existing members of DA, and therefore are generally very happy to be contacted and appreciative of the effort to help them vote. It's a very meaningful way to help our cause and can be quite enjoyable!

    🪰 You can help amplify President Biden's accomplishments by using this easy-to-use app. The DNC is excited to introduce you to a new and easy process to create/receive content and communicate through this app called Greenfly. Please open this link on a phone or tablet.

    Here's what you'll need to do to get started:

    • Download the Greenfly app on your phone
    • When prompted, enter the unique invite code: DEMSDEMS
    • Set up your profile and allow notifications

    Once you have made your profile on Greenfly, you will be able to access our best creative assets, like the video on President Biden's accomplishments, for you to amplify on your own social media accounts. 

    And no need to worry - Greenfly will not store any of your personal social login credentials in the app, nor will it share on your behalf. 

    Attached, you'll find an easy one-sheet for your reference. For your convenience, here is a video on how to use Greenfly, but we know you'll find it very intuitive.

    Issues

    • Winning the Midterm Elections
    • Climate Change
    • Reproductive Rights
    • Defending Democracy and Fighting Fascism

    As Americans living all over the world, who are bearing witness to the growing global climate change devastation, we urge the Biden-Harris administration to take the lead and declare a National Climate Emergency.

    Upcoming Events

    Fight for Our Reproductive Rights - Take Action Now!

    Fight_for_Our_Reproductive_Rights_-_Take_Action_Now!_FB.png

     

    The Supreme Court, packed with radical right-wing judges by Trump and Mitch McConnell, just made women second-class citizens. Women no longer have control over their own bodies. People will be forced to give birth against their will, and doctors will fear prison for treating those with complicated pregnancies.

    This is the first time in US history that a fundamental right has been TAKEN AWAY. If Republicans retake power in November, Americans will be ruled by a minority of radical extremists.

    *WE MUST MOBILIZE EVERYONE TO VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS IN 2022*. Register and vote, and ask your friends to register and vote.

     

    Program

    10:00 - 11:00 -  We will have speakers discuss the situation, how we got there, and what we need to do now. We will have a speaker joining us from Texas who will give us a sense of the situation on the ground there. We will also, give attendees time to speak out.

    11:00 - 12:00 - We will have a quick phone banking training so we can immediately take action by calling our members who vote in battleground states. The majority of our members have not requested an absentee ballot yet!

     

    Sign up for the Dialing for Democracy Event

     

    We must maintain legislative control of our government to protect our rights.  In order to do that we will participate in Dialing for Democracy and help get out the vote.  Getting our members to request an absentee ballot is an important step in securing our rights. We must outvote the regressive Republicans! We must expand the Senate Majority, hold on to the House, and win key races at the state and local levels.
