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.

Democrats in Bengaluru,
With the new year right around the corner, our resolution is to make Donald Trump a 1-term president. And we need your help to do it.
In tough elections, the overseas vote can often be enough to tip a democratic candidate over the top to victory- so in perhaps the most important election of our lifetimes, as Americans abroad, we cannot sit back.
Join us at 3:30pm on Friday, December 6th at the Starbucks in Indiranagar to get to know each other, discuss registering Americans in Bengaluru to vote, and share the issues that matter most to us going in to this year!
We sincerely hope to see you there!
American Chocolate expert Tom Neuhaus started Project Hope and Fairness in 2006 to alleviate the economic hardships of West African cocoa farmers.
Since then, the non-profit has focused on building chocolate factories in West African villages. The average cocoa farmer receives only 6% of the retail price when engaged in commodity production but stands to earn over 40% if producing chocolate.
Tom, who recently moved to the Tarn, will lead a chocolate tasting--and there will be chocolate bars for purchase as holiday gifts and stocking stuffers.
Join us for this fascinating look at the chocolate trade--and the ecological impact and economic implications of cocoa farming.
After the presentation and tasting, you are invited to stay on for a seasonal dinner at Toulouse's best known organic restaurant. Dinner will be billed by the restaurant itself, depending on your orders--but it's relatively modestly prices--about 13 euros from an excellent buffet (without wine or coffee).
Please RSVP indicating whether you will stay on for the dinner or not, so the restaurant can plan accordingly.
You may confirm your place(s) by booking here and paying the 5 euro contribution. Note: Only U.S. citizens may contribute. If you'd like to support the work of Democrats Abroad Toulouse, please also make a donation.
The restaurant is a short walk from Place Capitole in Central Toulouse.

Due to a unique opportunity, which will be discussed at the meeting, we might be in a great position to actually do this. All are welcome!
