Coming Up! October 6-12: We’ll be phonebanking Virginia voters.
Thank you in advance to the Phone Bankers making calls to VA members! Phone banking works. In the recent campaign for the California Recall, we connected with over 60% of the California members we called. And look at how that turned out.
Interested in becoming a phone bank volunteer? Find information and training materials at www.democratsabroad.org/phonebanking_training.
If you're not a Virginia voter, please share this information with people you know who are Virginia voters, even if they reside back in the US.
On October 2, Barcelona members of Democrats Abroad and the DA Spain Women's Caucus, in collaboration with other women's groups in Barcelona, gathered at Plaza Catalunya to support the protests organized in the US by Women's March and raise our voices in defense of women's reproductive rights. A threat to women's rights anywhere is a threat to women's rights everywhere, and the uncertain future of Roe v. Wade in the US makes it increasingly evident that women and their allies worldwide must speak up and resist this attack.
Please join Democrats Abroad Madrid for a screening of the award winning documentary Knock Down the House!

Time: 6:30pm doors open / 7pm documentary starts / 8:30-9pm post-screening discussion

Brief synopsis of the film:
When tragedy struck her family in the midst of the financial crisis, Bronx-born Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had to work double shifts in a restaurant to save her home from foreclosure. After losing a loved one to a preventable medical condition, Amy Vilela didn’t know what to do with the anger she felt about America’s broken health care system. Cori Bush was drawn into the streets when the police shooting of an unarmed black man brought protests and tanks into her neighborhood. Paula Jean Swearengin was fed up with watching her friends and family suffer and die from the environmental effects of the coal industry.
At a moment of historic volatility in American politics, these four women decide to fight back, setting themselves on a journey that will change their lives and their country forever. Without political experience or corporate money, they build a movement of insurgent candidates challenging powerful incumbents in Congress. Their efforts result in a legendary upset.
We look forward to seeing you there!
For this session of La Lucha Continúa, we will meet to discuss current events and activities in our chapter, country committee and global - as well as what's happening back home in the US.
