    Outdoor potluck dinner on the 99th anniversary of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote

    Come join other Americans and friends in an outdoor potluck dinner.  We'll enjoy each other's company, share a great meal and cook up ideas for how we here will help tip the balance and win the 2020 election.

    August 26 is the 99th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which guaranteed women the right to vote.  At this time when women's rights are under assault in the U.S., it's all the more important that we strategize and mobilize ourselves in the coming months.  We need to reach out to the thousands of U.S. citizens in our area to register and vote.  And, we can organize phone banking here for critical campaigns in the States -- including some coming up soon.

    For the potluck, please RSVP on this site.  Dems Abroad Hamilton chair David Mivasair will respond with details and ask you about what you'd like to bring.   We'll provide tableware.  We need main dishes, side dishes, salads, drinks, desserts and whatever else is your specialty.

    If you have questions, comments or suggestions, please contact David Mivasair.

    Pronto Cafe & Bar in Shanghai, China

    DACN Book Club & Take an Action Event

    A two-part event in which we first discover Mary Matsuda Gruenewald's book "Looking Like the Enemy" over Happy Hour drinks.

     

    During World War II, America committed the shameful act of interning American citizens of Japanese origin. Now, internment camps are back in the news and we find our current administration routinely detaining refugees, asylum seekers and, in several cases, already naturalized American citizens because of their "looks."

     

    The second half of the event will be for aiding participants in contacting their representatives through writing, emailing and calling. This event is organized by the Women's Caucus.

    Münster Christopher Street Day (CSD)

    According to Wikipedia, Christopher Street Day (CSD) “is an annual European LGBT celebration and demonstration held in various cities across Europe for the rights of LGBT people, and against discrimination and exclusion. It is Germany's counterpart to Gay Pride or Pride Parades.” That sounds about right. This year will mark the first time that our chapter will be actively taking part in Münster’s festivities.

    11:30 – Equality Demo

    Join DA members as we demonstrate through the street of Münster with hundreds of others in support of equality. We will provide signs. All you need to do is tell us you are coming (see below).

    13:00 – 19:00 – DA Information Stand at the Hafenfest

    If you are interested in helping out with this effort, please sign up, and we will provide you with detailed information.

    Sign-up sheet for both: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1U0DVXnY3fGd9g10d-NT2svSsIg24qoQ0CQBEkUuAB9s/edit?usp=sharing
