    Great American Quiz Night – Democrats Abroad Berlin

    Who doesn't love a good game of trivia? With our monthly political pub nights on pause for now, join Democrats Abroad in Berlin for a fun night of "pub" (BYO) quiz instead!

    The game will consist of five rounds of questions, and will cover a broad range of topics -- current events, politics, general knowledge, and a few surprises to spice things up. Gather your friends to form a team, and RSVP so we can send you the video call link. In June we had a team from the UK join - all are welcome, we would be very happy to see people from across the globe join in for this friendly competition.

    RSVP

    Please RSVP so we can send you the video call information and so we have an idea of how many people to expect.

    As an "entrance fee" we encourage all participants to make at least five calls to remind Democrats Abroad members to request their absentee ballot. Make your calls today: https://www.democratsabroad.org/voter_support_team This is on the honor system, we will not be checking who made calls - but this is one of the most effective ways for us to win in November, each call can make a difference!

    You can help out by sharing this event with your American friends and acquaintances in Berlin! As always, we welcome new faces, even if you've never attended a meeting or an event before.

And then you'll be ready and confident to make calls on your own! Our phonebanking efforts are critical work from now through the election. This is how we find voters, win elections, and make things better. Join us!

    Democratic Yoga with Gretchen


    This is a recurring event.

    Yoga is so popular today for its many benefits it offers the mind, body and soul. But maybe you've never tried yoga. Or maybe you've tried and thought it wasn't for you? Yoga is for everyone, and this Radiant Warrior vinyasa flow set is perfect for you. If you are already a confirmed yogi, come along for a slow flow that gets back to the basics. 

    If you have the following, please bring it to class: a yoga mat or some kind of mat that doesn't slip, a couple of yoga blocks or thick books (Harry Potter style), a strap or fabric belt or scarf, a small pillow or cushion or towel, and some water to drink.

    Gretchen has done yoga for many years and is completing her 200-hour online yoga teacher training with the Yoga Farm Ithaca. She is chair of Democrats Abroad Grenoble, national Volunteer Coordinator, and teaches English at the Université Savoie Mont Blanc in Chambéry. She votes in Maine.

    This event is A Feelgood Fundraiser for Democrats Abroad France, and benefits our critical 2020 "Get Out the Vote" Efforts this Fall. Any contribution is welcome; 10 EUR per person is suggested. Please give here. Thank you! 

    DISCLAIMER: Yoga is a physical exercise that can include some strenuous activity. Before engaging in any physical exercise or activity, all participants are advised to consult with a medical professional to ensure that they are capable of participating in any exercise routine or class. If you are pregnant or have any major illnesses, you are strongly urged and advised to seek the advice of a medical professional or specialist familiar with your personal situation before beginning any exercise routine or class. Democrats Abroad France (DAF) is not an official yoga class provider nor a medical adviser and cannot advise participants as to the risks involved in participating in a yoga class at home outside of the in-person supervision of a certified yoga teacher. Accordingly, all participants in home-based Zoom yoga classes led by DAF or any DAF members are thus participating at their own risk. DAF will not be held responsible for any harm or injuries endured during said classes.
