    DACH Geneva Book Club - May 2023


    Our May 2023 book is Why We're Polarized by Ezra Klein. From Amazon:

    This New York Times and Wall Street Journal best seller shows us that America’s political system isn’t broken. The truth is scarier: It’s working exactly as designed. In this “superbly researched” (The Washington Post) and timely book, journalist Ezra Klein reveals how that system is polarizing us - and how we are polarizing it - with disastrous results.


    Please join us even if you haven't read the book!

    Additional information about this (and future) event(s) can be found here.

    May's meeting will take place on Zoom and in-person in Geneva; RSVP or send an email to Sam to receive the meeting details. If you aren't already on the Geneva Book Club mailing list, you can send an email to Sam letting him know you'd like to be added.

    Grand Opening of our New Jersey Phonebanking Campaign Office

    Celebrate the Grand Opening of our New Jersey General Election 2023 Campaign Office on Wednesday, May 3rd at 6:00 PM, in Amsterdam! 

    • Light supper, wine, and soft drinks will be served.

    We will kick off the night with some needed volunteering. 

    You can choose to either:

    • Call our friendly Democrats Abroad members via our online call hub system to inform them of upcoming state elections and/or
    • Answer questions via email about overseas voting (templates will be provided).

    All you need is a laptop or tablet and headphones!

    Never volunteered before? No problem, training will be available at the event.

    ***Grand Prize Awarded to the volunteer who logs in the most hours on our call hub phone banking system for NJ's state competitive elections in 2023. This will be announced at the event!***

    Why are we phone banking?

    Recent changes in NJ law (A3929/S2899) allow voters living abroad who mark their Federal Post Card Application (FPCA-overseas ballot request) “return is uncertain” to vote in STATE and Federal elections! NJ voters who mark their FPCA “intend to return” may vote in local, state, and Federal elections.

    These laws are new, so we need to let our New Jersey members know they can vote and should request their ballots immediately to ensure they receive the correct ballot for both the Primary and General elections! 

    What's at stake in this election?

    Voting rights: After fighting a nearly 5-year struggle to restore our voting rights, which were unjustly taken away in 2017 by Republican Chris Christie, we must now fight to keep them! 

    In the last election, Democrats lost seats by just a little over 500 votes. Many Democrats who did win had margins of victory that were razor-thin. This has emboldened Republicans who came out in full force against our voting rights bill. If we lose this election, we could lose our right to vote in state elections again. Overseas votes will be the margin of victory in 2023.  

    Why do state elections matter?

    Balance of Power:  

    • Governor Murphy abided by the environmental regulations set forth by the Paris Accords when our Republican President refused.
    • Imagine returning home and not having reproductive choice? This can be a reality if we do not win state elections. 
    • Medical insurance regulations: In some countries, Americans do not qualify for medical insurance because they are not permanent residents or citizens of that country. They need to get their medical insurance back home in NJ. 
    • As a result of conservative Justice Thomas’ suggestion that the court should “reconsider” cases that had affirmed LGBTQ rights, NJ state Democratic legislators passed a bill, which was signed by Governor Murphy, which guarantees marriage equality in New Jersey law by providing that all laws concerning marriage and civil union are to be read with gender neutral intent. For overseas voters, getting married in the United States may be the only option for LGBTQ+, if their host country does not support it.
    • State Decisions regarding Net Neutrality and the Climate Crisis impact our communications and environment all over the world.

    NJ Programs and more: Overseas voters count on programs and state-funded institutions back home, such as the 24-hour hotline for veterans, higher education funding through the Higher Education Assistance Authority (HESSA), state student loan interest rates, and more. Overseas voters have a stake in state elections, and we need to vote to keep our voting rights!
