    February Presidential Primary Viewing

    Please join us for the next debate viewing February 26th at 6PM, to be followed by discussion over drinks and light refreshments, at The Village Tap Room (c/ Martín de los Heros 28, metros Plaza de España and Ventura Rodríguez).

    In February, they’re ramping things up: There will be three different debates over the course of the month, to be held 2/7, 2/19 and 2/25.

    If you don’t have time to watch them all, never fear! We will summarize highlights from the first two before viewing the third as a group.

    As always, it’s a privilege when our members come to share their thoughts and unique perspective on the candidates’ positions. This is especially true with the Global Presidential Primary right around the corner. We’re getting down to the wire; it’s almost time to cast our vote! Dissecting these debates is a great way to stay informed, and we’re all looking forward to hearing from you.

    Stay tuned for updates when the list of debate participants is made available.

    We kindly ask that you RSVP. It’s a huge help with our organizational efforts.

    See you there!

    Madrid Global Presidential Primary—Super Tuesday

    On Super Tuesday, Democrats Abroad Madrid invites you to vote for the Democratic presidential candidate of your choice at The Village Tap Room. 

    You are eligible to vote in the Global Presidential Primary just by being a member of Democrats Abroad and choosing to vote for the Democratic presidential candidate through Democrats Abroad instead of your home state.

    (However, you can still vote for all other candidate preferences and local officials in your home state primary—just leave the slot for the presidential candidate blank.)

    If you've yet to join Democrats Abroad or register for your absentee ballot, go to VoteFromAbroad.org to do both.

    Democrats Abroad sends delegates to the Democratic National Convention who vote for candidates in proportion to the results of our Global Presidential Primary. Thousands of overseas Americans will participate in the DA Global Presidential Primary, but millions will vote in your home state...making your vote that much more powerful! Your participation will send a signal to the Democratic Party that Americans abroad are alive and well and have specific concerns.

    In 2016, hundreds of overseas Americans in Madrid joined us for a night of activities, food, music, and fun. We hope you'll join us this year!

    International Women's Day: A Primer on Black Female Activism

    On International Women's Day, during our last GPP event, long-time activist and DA supporter Nicole Pearson will host a talk entitled, "A Primer on Black female activism: Organizing as if your lives depended on it."

    Black female activism is not the stuff of legend nor the province of heroes but the domain of every day working class Black women making a way out of no way. Their insistence on holding democracy to its highest ideals helped extend democracy to many disenfranchised populations including women and indigenous people.

    How can their work inspire us in this critical political climate?

    Come join us as we spend the evening exploring their legacy.
