    ProDA Austria: Transactional or Tranformational Change in 2020?

    We Democrats often consider "change" a crucial component of our election strategy. Will 2020 be a year for transactional or transformational change? Join us for our next Progressive Pizza, where we will attempt to define both terms, contemplate the benefits of each, and consider which will prevail in this election cycle.

    Black History Month - "The Amazing Grace" Watch Party

    Join us online to watch the film "The Amazing Grace" by Jeta Amata, a Nigerian filmmaker, released in 2006. This film is not available on streaming. After we watch the film there will be a discussion.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    About the film:

    The film is a feature film (not a documentary) about British slave trading in Nigeria in the mid-1700s. It shows the capture of local people, imprisonment, and conditions on the slave ships from a Nigerian perspective. Parts of the film are in native Nigerian languages with English subtitles.

    The song "Amazing Grace" comes originally from Nigeria. Some say the melody came from the Calabar region in Nigeria and was sung by the Ibibio and Eket people.
    John Newton, a British slave trader, heard the song in Nigeria and later added English texts to the melody.

    The film is part of the Nigerian "Nollywood" film industry, which has made thousands of films and is one of the biggest film industries in the world today.
    Nollywood films are often very emotional, and "The Amazing Grace" is no exception. No holds barred.

    Watch the trailer:

    Let's kickoff the primaries!

    Join DAN for a Primary Kickoff party! Let's get together on the night of the Iowa caucus, that's February 3 from 7pm-1am at Gamla in downtown Oslo. (Only a 7 minute walk from central station. The entrance is on Møllergata.)

    From 7pm to 9pm there will be an informal social meetup in the bar area ala the Drinking Liberally gatherings.

    Starting about 9pm we will broadcast coverage of the action from Iowa and at 9:30pm we will offer you a chance to vote just like an Iowan! The process in Iowa is unlike any other primary and the caucuses are often defined as "gatherings of neighbors." Participants then show their support for an individual presidential candidate by dividing into groups in the room. To your corners!

    See you February 3!
