La Lucha Continúa: Learning about the DNC
Martha McDevitt-Pugh, Art Shankler and Katie Solon are three of the eight elected members of Democrats Abroad who have the honor and responsibility of representing DA at biannual meetings of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the governing body of the U.S. Democratic party.
We've all heard it mentioned, but do we really understand what the DNC is, why it exists and whether it even matters to U.S. citizens living in Spain?
You could just read the incredibly comprehensive Wikipedia entry, but we have a better plan! On March 21, Martha, Art and Katie will join La Lucha to demystify the DNC: explain how it works and what it's like to serve in this capacity. They will share their experiences and recent highlights, and answer your questions.

Spain Women's Caucus - Let's Talk
The Spain Women's Caucus is hosting our second informal one hour chat that we are calling ‘Let’s Talk!’ to close out the month of March, Women’s History Month.
The focus will be on sharing who our personal female heroes are, be they historical, current, famous or not. As well we can talk about what is on our minds, for example the ERA, abortion rights, and being a foreign female living in Spain. It will be a very informal gathering with a flexible agenda.
The suggested topics are:
- Who is your female hero? (How do we define the word ‘hero’?)
- What is going on in the USA!?! (ERA, abortion rights, the current Supreme Court etc. etc. (The list is too long!)
- What is it like to be a foreign woman living in Spain?
- What is on your mind?
