    2019 Women's March Berlin


    Many of you have asked about the Women's March 2019 in Berlin -- it's definitely happening, so mark your calendars and save the date!

    We will be gathering at the Brandenburg Gate on Saturday, January 19th, to hear speeches about how we are all fighting for women's equality around the world. We will be marching down Unter den Linden to Alexanderplatz to show Berlin that the Women's March in 2017 wasn't just a one-time event, but that we are still here and we are still fighting.

    Find more information and the full statement of purpose on the Facebook event page.

    Please feel free to RSVP and to share the event. We look forward to seeing you in January!

    Friedrich-Ebert-Platz in Heidelberg , Germany

    Stuttgart is marching in Heidelberg!

    Join us again as we march with our DA neighbor chapter in Heidelberg in support of the 2019 Global Women’s March.

    Just as we did last year, we will be meeting at the Stuttgart Main Train Station and travelling as a group to Heidelberg.
    The march in Heidelberg  begins at 13:30 at the Friedrich Ebert Platz and will finish around 16:30 in at the Heidelberg Rathausplatz. We plan to arrive in Heidelberg early enough to meet up at a coffee shop with other members who will be arriving from all over our chapter for the march.

    Details on our own travel plans will be coming soon.  Watch this space for updates!

    The theme for the March this year is “Ending violence against women”, and we are using this platform to spread awareness and  show our support for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).

    We will be having a “Sign-making and ERA Awareness Workshop” in preparation for the march on Saturday afternoon, January 11th.  Please see the separate event post for more details on this.

    We look forward to marching with you!

    Please RSVP below

    Heidelberg Women's March 2019

    The Heidelberg Chapter is marching in support of the 2019 Global Women’s March. The theme for the March this year is “Ending violence against women”,  and we are using this platform to spread awareness and raise support for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).

    When: January 19th 2019, 13:30 start (finish around 16:30)

    Where:  Meeting point is Friedrich-Ebert-Platz

    Democrats Abroad will be at the start with their banner, so look for us there. (This didn’t happen last year due to our commitment to set up the sound system at the end, but Nancy guarantees she will be at the start with the banner this year!).

    It would be great if you make a sign that supports the above-mentioned themes, wear warm clothes and join us. Perhaps we can get together for a warm meal afterwards. Look for our stand at the end of the March for details on that. The March route will be the same as the past two years, starting at Friedrich-Ebert-Platz and finishing at the Heidelberger Rathaus at the Marktplatz.

    Look forward to seeing you there!

    Wesley Center in Minato-ku, Japan

    Do we need an Equal Rights Amendment Discussion

    A joint event with Women of the World Unite to mark the annual worldwide Women's March.

    The event will kick off with a casual discussion over a light lunch about gender issues in Japan, then will be followed by a discussion of the merits and demerits of enshrining women’s rights in a nation’s constitution through passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. Not all agree that the Equal Right's Amendment should be passed in the United States, so this should be an interesting and passionate discussion. Join us to have your voice heard.

    Discussion about systems and guarantees in various countries will be followed by a workshop focused on concrete actions that we can take to promote gender equality.

    Cost: 2000 yen (light lunch included)

    Join Drinking Liberally's monthly pub meet ups!

    Now this from DAN's partner Drinking Liberally—
    Hey everybody! Because our day falls on 12/25, we will be forgoing a December meet-up and will reconvene in January to celebrate the new Democratic Congress. Enjoy your celebrations, and don't forget to drink liberally on your own... Or even with others! We will see you in 2019!

    What is Drinking Liberally? It is an informal, inclusive, progressive social group. Raise your spirits while you raise your glass, and share ideas while you share a pitcher. Drinking Liberally gives like-minded, left-leaning individuals a place to talk politics. You don't need to be a policy expert and this isn't a book club - just come and learn from peers, trade jokes, vent frustration and hang out in an environment where it's not taboo to talk politics.

    Bars are democratic spaces - you talk to strangers, you share booths, you feel the bond of common ground. Bring democratic discourse to your local democratic space - build democracy one drink at a time.
