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.

Help us call DA Virginia Voters --Only 1 Vote Will Flip the State Legislature!
Just a few weeks ago, Republicans stopped the Equal Rights Amendment in the Virginia Legislature by a single vote!
We were devastated, but not defeated!
Democrats lost control of the VA House of Delegates in the last election by a single vote--the deciding seat was tied and Republicans won it on a COIN TOSS! If we'd had one more voter in that final district the delegate would have been a Dem and we'd have had a legislative majority and, with one more vote, VA would have ratified the ERA.
So now we’re getting ready to take back Virginia!
The entire VA state legislature up for election in November and the primary deadlines are coming up!
We’ve just set up new global phone banking campaigns to reach out to DA voters in Virginia where the 2019 state elections will decide the majority in both the House of Delegates and the VA State Senate.
Let’s ensure a majority in the VA legislature and ratify the ERA!
Sign up here to be on our phone banking team and join the Campaign for Virginia!
Because Our Rights are too important for a coin toss!
We will be meeting as a local chapter and discussing issues we care about.
All leaders are encouraged to attend this public hearing on Zoom, organized by the Special Bylaws Committee, to address 2019 Charter Amendment propositions 16-19. The draft language of these propositions can be found on the Wiki.
Easter Sunday is right around the corner! Looking for something fun to do? Join fellow Democrats Abroad for an afternoon in the park!
On Sunday, April 21st, Democrats Abroad in Argentina will gather in Buenos Aires' beautiful Bosques de Palermo for an afternoon picnic, easter egg hunt (if people bring enough chocolate to hide), and possible round of beers in the early evening. If you have yet to visit the Bosques de Palermo, you're missing out on around 200 acres of green space in the heart of Buenos Aires. If you have yet to share your Easter traditions with fellow Americans abroad, this is your chance.
We'd love to see you there. Come hang out, bring friends and family, and continue building the shared effort that is Democrats Abroad! Please bring a snack to share with 5 to 10 people and a cold drink. You mate drinkers should feel free to bring your termo con agua caliente, mate and yerba..and if you are real top, your Stanley.
We'll be at the Bosque de Palermo's Parque 3 de Febrero from 4-7pm, walking over to the Arcos de Palermo for something to drink after that...
This month, we will be having an open forum discussion on politics in America today. Will Trump be forced to release his tax returns? Why should Americans care about Brexit? Who is actually running for President? The Mueller Report *sighs dramatically* (why did we have such high hopes??).
Bring your questions, concerns, rants, etc., grab some food/drinks at the bar, and come on up to the second floor to talk politics, socialise, and get informed ahead of 2020! See you there!
Join Democrats Abroad Grenoble for our April Political Wine.

At the same time, you can enjoy a glass of wine from the Languedoc region and some French cheese.
Our monthly roundup of the news with Jean-Pierre LaRochelle at the helm!

NOTE: YET ANOTHER CHANGE IN OUR VENUE: Upstairs at the Café Odeon (The Margherita is closed for several months for renovation) which offers delicious food and drinks if so desired. Also note the date change (from April 16) to April 23. All else remains the same good conversation!
