💻 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.

DA Wiesbaden-Mainz Region Intro

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.
