In an effort to address the concerns of our members, DACH is forming caucuses at the country level in support of the global caucuses. At this time, we do not have enough members of some caucuses to form individual caucuses, but because of shared interests we feel that an inclusive Diversity Team can meet the needs of many. Currently, we will be focusing on:Based on the Diversity Caucus in DA France, our proposed mission is to support, educate, and enlighten our community with social, political, and cultural events. We hope to engage, empower, and motivate our members and the larger community of Americans in Switzerland to exercise their right to vote from abroad.
We want YOU to join our Diversity Team! Help contribute to discussion on what events and activities you would like to see and how you would like to have the Diversity Team structured.

“In Our Prime: How Older Women are Reinventing the Road Ahead”
A group reading and discussion of Susan J. Douglas’ thoroughly considered view of the 50+ stereotypes in our society.
In a deep examination of ageism, baby-boomer feminism, the media, and the political and economic structures that continue to dictate the false narratives of middle-age women, the author puts forth an urgent case for a stereotype-defying activism of “Lifespan Feminism”: a bridge between young women and “fuddy-duddy” second-wave feminists to harness momentum for a brighter future.
Come, one! Come, all! Harness that future!
These discussions concern women and men and a balanced discussion is our goal.
Hosted by DAGR Reps-at-Large Sarajane Kidd Leone and Rebecca Lieb.
Born from a DAGR Women’s Caucus post by Charity Moschopoulos noting the recent publication.
Books have arrived! For those of you who had put in an order, contact Sarajane at 694 260 2055 or [email protected] to arrange a rendezvous to collect your copy.

We will also discuss briefly the renewed energy to enact the ERA and walk you through steps set out by the Global Women’s Caucus to pressure the Senate to follow through and pass the ERA.
You will receive an email with the ZOOM link after you RSVP and in good time before the event begins.
Politics is not a spectator sport! Join us every Wednesday every month as we join together to take political action -- to engage our elected officials and policy makers on the issues that matter!
We will start the first few minutes of every meeting with calls to our elected officials in House and Senate -- you can call Congress for Free from France at 07 555 3 6446 (or 07 555 DOGGO) -- this connects callers automatically to the US Capitol Switchboard, where you follow the prompts to be connected to your House Rep or Senators.
Never made constituent calls before? Don't worry, we will walk you through what to do including a call script. Every meeting we will also have new actions to take on the issues, together -- postcarding, phonebanking, textbanking, and more.
Have an action to suggest? Contact Max Dunitz [email protected]
