Democrats Abroad Guatemala Policy Retreat: Saturday, January 20, 2018

The Democrats Abroad Guatemala policy retreat scheduled for Saturday, January 20, 2018 will soon be here.

All we need is commitment from you to attend and support the event. If you have already responded we thank you, but if not, we ask you to read on and make a commitment to attend.

The policy retreat is the perfect venue to share your thoughts and views on policy issues being affected and changed by the Trump administration.

The retreat will be held at Casa de Retiros Posada Belén, Calle del Hermano Pedro Plazuela Belén, from 9:00am to 4:00pm.

Lunch will be provided on the premises prepared by Hermanas Bethalmitas for Q85 per person, (if you choose to have lunch off-premises the suggested contribution for the event is Q75).

The following issues have been identified for the day’s agenda: Tax Cuts and the US Economy; Women’s Issues; Achieving Universal Health Care; The Democratic Party – How to Win Elections in 2018 and Beyond; Immigration Reform; Russia and US Elections; Key 2018 House and Senate Races.

A presenter will introduce each topic using slides or a short detailed talk of five to 10 minutes, followed by open discussion for 45 minutes to an hour, closing with a summary statement that best captures the sentiment of the open discussion, before moving onto the next topic.

Closing statements on each topic will be used in messaging our Get Out The Vote campaign for the 2018 midterm elections. Your input is important, so please consider participating in this important one-time event.

Respond to Kee Kalwara, at that you will attend and if you will be joining us for lunch (we need an accurate count ahead of time). And direct any other questions to Kee as well.

Thank you.
