In mid-June of 1865, the news of freedom reached Texas. And it is that day, dubbed Juneteenth, that we Black Americans recognize our independence from tyranny.
DACN's Black Caucus would like for you to participate in this remembrance celebration to her our history, while acknowledging our continued fight for equality.
If you are American and would like to be an active part of the celebration, please scan the QR code and join DACN's Juneteenth planning group no later than June 13th. We welcome everyone to join the Zoom Event on June 20th.
Tax reform will happen when enough Americans abroad reach out to their members of Congress and demand it — that’s why we’re asking for your help.
Congress does not hear from enough of us who are irate about the way Americans overseas are treated under the U.S. tax code, so they fail to act. You can help change that.
Please pick up the phone on June 15, call your Members of Congress, and let them know it’s time for fair tax policy for Americans overseas.
New to calling? No problem. All the information you need is in this advocacy guide, including:
- How to establish who are your Members of Congress
- How to contact them
- Scripts for what to say in your phone call
- Language to put into written communication - digital or old school
RSVP HERE to let us know you are participating.
Use THIS LINK to tell us who your contacted and how it went.
