    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.

    Frankfurt CSD/Pride 2022

    Fraankfurt_CSD_July_2022_(Facebook_Cover).png

     

    June is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBTQ) Pride Month to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots and work to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity for the LGBTQ community. In June of 1969, patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn in New York City staged an uprising to resist the police harassment, and persecution LGBT Americans were commonly subjected to. This uprising marks the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against LGBT Americans. 2022 marks the 53rd anniversary of the June 1969 Stonewall Riots. This year is also the 30th Anniversary of Christopher Street Day (CSD) Frankfurt.

    The Frankfurt Chapter and the Wiesbaden-Mainz Chapter will be setting up an information stand for the duration of the event and walking in the CSD Parade on Saturday to show our support.

    Come help us find Americans living overseas and get them to help us with next year's voting efforts! We'll need help on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday times to be determined. We will also need people to walk in the parade.

    Further details will follow. Please RSVP to the event if you’re interested in attending, and you will receive the link to the signup sheet.

    Join Democrats Abroad on Saturday, 17 July, as we take to the streets to celebrate love and pride!
