The Equal Rights Amendment resolution passed unanimously in Tokyo where we committed to do whatever we can to help get the ERA ratified. See the resolution here.
Watch the video "Legalize Equality." This 30-minute video gives an excellent overview of the Equal Rights Amendment and why it is critical to be ratified.
You can watch the video until 31 December 2020 or the ERA passes.

Reproductive Rights are Human Rights
A Democrats Abroad Global Women’s Caucus Event Toolkit
January is Women’s Rights Month! The fourth Women’s March will take place on January 18th, 2020. This year’s theme will be “March for our Human Rights.” GWC can think of no more fundamental human right than to have sovereignty over one’s own body.
We encourage members to participate in marches that will take place around the world and/or plan group meetings around the theme of reproductive rights throughout the month of January and beyond!
To help organize your own events, we have put together a GWC Reproductive Rights Event Toolkit. All members are invited to choose elements from this collection of activity and event ideas to build their own unique events around our theme.
We are also grateful to NARAL/Pro-Choice America for making their great materials available to us!
All you have to do is click, get inspired and organize!
For help, more suggestions and to share your event info and photos, please contact us at: email@example.com

Your monthly – and best - roundup of news: impeachment analysis, the Democratic candidates, the 2020 elections... Jean Pierre LaRochelle will lead the discussion and you can share your points of view for discussion. Democrats speak up and speak out in the cordial atmosphere of The Frog Revolution. Good food too if you want.
Americans all around Berlin are gearing up for the 2020 election. This is the the first Prenzlauer Berg Kiez meeting in 2020, so come to meet your neighbors in the new year.
We’d like to discuss the final debate, the primary process, and caucusing with attendees. And, of course, getting the registered to vote and excited about volunteering.
Berlin's a big place, so Democrats Abroad Kiez Captains are helping to bring together Americans, get out the vote, and organize in different neighborhoods. These Kiez meetups are intended for people who live or work in the area. Don't see one for your neighborhood yet? Get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
It's not required, but RSVP so we have a rough idea of how many people to expect.
You can help out by sharing this event with your American friends and acquaintances in Berlin! As always, we welcome new faces, even if you've never attended a meeting or an event before.
Grab a drink and some food and come on upstairs to the conference room at John Scott’s in central Göteborg. Lots to talk about! The primaries! The candidates! The impeachment!
See you there!

Our new DACH Chair Vance White has worn glasses since he was 10 years old, but he still has a very clear vision of what DACH must accomplish in 2020 and why we must be successful in the 2020 Elections!
This is an important year for the future of all Americans as we approach what will be a monumental election. The primaries are vital to selecting a candidate for the Democratic Party who will be victorious in November. As we enter into the main events of the Primary process, Vance will be hosting a series of events around Switzerland so that individuals can learn more about each candidate and then make informed decisions as they vote in the Global Presidential Primary (see more information about the GPP here).
These events use the theme of 2020 Vision and will allow you, individuals who have a multitude of reasons to support a particular candidate, to be candid about your preferences and discuss the positive aspects that helped you to prefer that candidate. And for those of you who have not yet determined which candidate is your favorite, we hope that the candid sharing of information about candidates will help you to know more about the platforms of the candidates as you prepare to vote in the Global Presidential Primary.
This event in Geneva will be our inaugural Candid-Candidates event and we look forward to meeting you all!
A private residence near Parc des Chaumettes.
The exact address will be sent to you upon registration at Eventzilla.
This event is FREE OF CHARGE, but we will gladly accept cash donations from any US citizens who attend the event. Democrats Abroad Switzerland is a volunteer organization that relies on donations to be able to provide outreach, voter education, and voter registration services. With the critical nature of the 2020 election, we need your financial support to allow us to register and motivate as many voters living in Switzerland as possible.
We have been invited to participate in the student activities fair at Bard College Berlin, which is taking place in Pankow (Eichenstraße 43, 13156 Berlin).
We're looking for volunteers for this upcoming lunchtime college fair on Thursday, January 30, 2020 to help register students to vote and talk to them about voting and being actively politically from abroad. It's a short time commitment and a great way to dip your toe into voter registration this year!
