    Some may wish to take a different train or drive but do try to find us in Heidelberg either at the coffee shop or at the Friedrich-Ebert Platz starting point. We will want to take a group photo or two, pass out our DA signs and flyers, and march as a group with our DA Heidelberg partners to show our numbers are strong!

    Presidential debate watch party

    New years bring you opportunities to reflect, resolve, and celebrate. This particular new year also brings those opportunities to the country. 
    In 2020, our resolution is to defeat Donald Trump on November 3rd. But first, we have the opportunity to choose (from an incredibly talented field) who we want to replace him.
    In the lead up to both the Iowa caucuses and Democrats Abroad’s very own Global Presidential Primary, join us on Sunday, the 19th of January, to watch the Seventh Democratic Presidential Debate and get to know our candidates with coffee, snacks and sweet treats!
    We sincerely hope to see you there, and look forward to working with you this year to ensure we elect our best candidate to the White House.

    Data for Democrats: A talk by Obama's data whiz David Shor

    With the primaries just around the corner, every day seems to bring a new poll on which candidates on winning and which candidates are trailing behind. But are the polls really accurate? Does the data behind our these polls actually tell us anything about voters' real intentions and the major cultural shifts that are underway?

    Join us on January 19th to hear from a man who can answer some of those questions: David Shor. As a young whiz on Obama's data analytics team in 2012 election, he predicted the results within 1 percentage point in all 50 states. Shor honed his skills in algorithms and polling working with Nate Silver, and today he works at Civis Analytics as the Head of Political Data Science. 

    Short will reflect on the successes and failures of polling during the 2016 and 2018 elections. Hear about how data analytics is evolving to better reflect a public that is more cautious and yet more digitally engaged. He will explain how Democratic campaigns can leverage data science to help us win in 2020.

    A bit more about David Shor here.

    Tickets are £15 (£7 concession) and will go quickly, so get yours today! Buy your tickets here.

    Please note that this event is CLOSED to the press.
