    Women’s Caucus Watches Toni Morrison

    Meet the Women’s Caucus as we get together to watch the new Toni Morrisson documentary, The Pieces I Am, featuring Toni Morrison, Angela Davis, Fran Lebowtiz, Oprah Winfrey, Walter Mosley, Russell Banks, and Robert Gottlieb. This film portrait received rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival – you won’t want to miss it!

    We’ve reserved twenty tickets so DA members can sit together as a group. Please purchase your ticket online ahead of time at https://www.filmhaus.at/film/tonimorrison-the-pieces-i-am/ and send me an email to let me know so I can add you to the list. Or, you can buy your ticket at the door by November 18 – tell them you’re with DA as they’ll also be keeping a list. The screening will most likely sell out so we can’t guarantee tickets will be available on the day of the screening.

    We’ll meet up at 7pm at Amerlinghaus for drinks beforehand. Let me know by the 18th if you’ll be coming so I can reserve a table!

    – Hilary Monihan, Women’s Caucus Chair

    Café Littéraire Bovary in Luxembourg, Luxembourg

    Silent Book Club

    Join fellow Democrats tonight for our book club. It is a little different: no homework, no discussion questions: Just bring along yourself + any book you're reading. We will be reading different books - but simultaneously & quietly!  Bring anything from Michelle Obama's Becoming to The US Constitution (always useful these days!), to the latest thriller, romance, or sci-fi that you can't put down! What better way to resist than to read voraciously during this anti-reading presidency!

    We'll start with a casual drink and chatting, order some dinner if you're hungry, and move into the "silent" hour where we enjoy reading. We'll close by chatting again (or continue reading if you can't put it down!), discussing our books, or wandering upstairs for another drink and conversation.

    Café Littéraire Bovary ! Perfect for book lovers & food lovers!
    7-7:30 pm - Drinks, intros, chatting, food orders
    7:30-8.30 pm - Quiet reading hour - just you and your book!
    8:30-9:30 - Chat about what you've been reading - or just enjoy the atmosphere & keep reading!

    There will be background music, so it won't be totally silent :) but it will be quiet and relaxing.
    If you come via public transportation, the 10, 11, 12, 23, 282 to Eicher Platz, Knupp, or Laval's Park are only a few minutes walk.

    Bureau of Immigration Detention Center in Taguig City, Philippines

    Thanksgiving 2019

    Join Democrats Abroad Philippines on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday November 28, 2019 from 9am-12nn at the Bureau of Immigration Detention Center in Lower Bicutan, Taguig City.

    We’ll visit American detainees. And if the Warden consents in advance, bring them supplies like food, reading materials and other necessities (Wardens often serve for just a year or so).

    We usually meet at Urdaneta Village, Makati City at 9am to depart for the Bicutan Immigration Detention Center in Taguig City and should be back at Urdaneta around noon.

    We’ve continued to provide support for a few incarcerated Americans, with former Chair John Boyd and Member David Kuchenbecker making regular visits with logistical support from Chair Lisa Pagkalinawan. Thanks David for your efforts to compile a list of detainees and offer assistance!

    Here’s a thank you letter from a former detainee: 

    Thank you for coming to visit us at Bicutan Detention Center. I was unjustly held there for two and half months and I am grateful for your visits. The washcloths that you provide me helped me to keep clean, which is a dauntingly difficult task when imprisoned. Most importantly, was the fact that you visited. It gave us hope knowing that there was somebody out there.

    Please RSVP by calling 0917.892.2989 or emailing da-ph@democratsabroad.org by 3pm Monday November 18, 2019 so we may arrange transportation.

    Democrats Abroad is the official organization of the Democratic Party for US citizens living permanently or temporarily abroad.
