Kitchen Table Talks are small group events held by our members to talk about policy issues that matter to Americans abroad.
Some of the issues you might want to discuss: Climate, Democracy, Economy, Equal Rights, Immigration, Health Care, Poverty, and Taxation.
DA Vancouver's Policy Secretary, Darius Pruss, will be leading the meeting, and your feedback can help shape the 2020 Democrats Abroad Platform.

In December, Political Forum will discuss the specific issue of Climate Change, guided by Jean-Pierre LaRochelle, our formidable monthly discussion leader.
To explain further: Every four years Democrats Abroad globally prepares a Platform to represent its policies on a variety of subjects. Most important in the 2020 Democrats Abroad Platform will be the Environment and Climate Change, a world-crisis concern within the Democratic Party. A Green New Deal has been presented by Democrats in the House of Representatives. Discussions for our Democrats Abroad 2020 Platform are currently underway and Democrats Abroad France contributes to these discussions actively in drafting the Environment policy planks.
On December 9 we will have a special "Kitchen Table Talk" Click Here for more information on Kitchen Table Talks with input from our own France Environment Policy Group experts and YOU. Learn more about the subject, and bring your own opinions to the "kitchen table." We want to hear from you!
