    Can you help Democrats Abroad in 2022?

    As we gear up for the 2022 midterm elections, we are looking for people to build our teams in countries that do not have a Democrats Abroad Country Committee. 

    We want to make sure ALL our volunteers and members are engaged in 2022! Your responses to the quick 10 minute survey in the link below will help us to better serve our outreach efforts in your region. Whether you can contribute a lot of time or just a little, you can make a difference in the upcoming midterm elections from wherever in the world you live.

    Let me know you'll join the effort by filling out the survey. I hope to hear from you soon!

    Democrats Abroad Oktoberfest Extravaganza 2022

    What started out 14 years ago as a Democrats Abroad “FUN-draiser” is now one of DA’s premier events worldwide. Come to Munich’s Oktoberfest, with Democrats from all around the world, in one of the most traditional beer tents - and finally in-person after two years! 

    Join us on Sunday, October 2, 2022 in Munich, Germany for the Annual Democrats Abroad Oktoberfest Extravaganza! This is a fun event for DA members from around Germany and Europe to come together and have a good time.

    We have reservations in the Festhalle Schottenhamel for tables in the "Gallerie", specifically an area upstairs so that we are above the main crowd, from 11am until 2:15pm.

    Get your tickets now for $85. All proceeds go to supporting our get out the vote efforts for the 2022 midterms.

    Each ticket includes:

    • A reserved seat in the “Gallerie”
    • A roasted half chicken (there are vegetarian options available)
    • Two liters of Spaten beer (there are other beverage options, too) 
    • A 10-euro coupon for other purchases

    To reserve your tickets, please RSVP and send in your donation.

    In addition to the Oktoberfest celebration on Sunday, you can already sign-up for a walking tour of the Munich Altstadt on Saturday, October 1st. Information about additional events will be announced soon.

    Interested in a homestay in Munich or hosting a DA visitor? Fill out the appropriate Google form. We’ll do our best to match guests with a wonderful host. We cannot guarantee you will be assigned a homestay. This is dependent on volunteer sign-up.
