    SPD Landesgeschäftsstelle in Hamburg, Germany

    Tax Seminar

    Calling all American ex-pats!

    The Hamburg Chapter of Democrats Abroad is hosting an informal event for U.S. citizens living abroad to inform them of their U.S. tax filing obligations. This is the chance to learn everything you ever wanted to know about US taxes but were afraid to ask!

    • Just how many Americans living abroad believe they do not have to file a US tax form?
    • How many know they do but feel overwhelmed by confusing forms that don't seem to correspond to their professional activities in Germany?
    • And even the most informed and conscientious US citizens may be a bit rattled by new rules and regulations and complex tax laws.

    Special guest is CPA David Opperman, who specializes in income tax preparation for Americans abroad. David will be holding an informal information session about your tax obligations and filing US taxes and fielding any and all questions you might have.

    When:            Saturday, February 2, 2019, 4:00 - 6:00 pm
    Where:           SPD Landesgeschäftsstelle*

    Kurt-Schuhmacher-Allee 10
    20097 Hamburg

    This is also an excellent opportunity to mingle with fellow American ex-pats over coffee and cookies.

    Please RSVP by Monday, January 28, 2019 at DAG-Hamburg@DemocratsAbroad.org

    *The generous support of the SPD has made it possible to hold this event in the heart of Hamburg.

    Online Webinar in Washington , DC

    Bearing Witness: Books Abroad Discusses Rape Culture and Roxane Gay's Not That Bad

    The Global Women's Caucus invites you to join us for another Books Abroad meeting on Sunday, February 3, 2019 to discuss Roxane Gay's latest publication Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture. This work, edited by Gay, is a collection of stories from people whose experiences may sound all-too-familiar.

    In her review in The Guardian, Hannah Jane Parkinson writes, "Gay notes in her introduction that she originally envisioned Not That Bad as a series of journalistically reported essays and features, genuine dispatches. Instead, the book is mostly confessional, first-person storytelling. And the storytelling is very good – observationally sharp, the writing often as vivid as bruises." In our discussion, we'll unpack these painful, but important stories and position them within the greater context of a country that allows for gender and sexual violence and often silences survivors. 

    A theme of this year's Women's March (please see the GWC website for resources and events near you) is combating violence against women with a sub-theme of pushing the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). Please join us as we continue listening to these important voices and discuss real steps that we can take--like passing the ERA--to eradicate rape culture.
