DA Finland enjoyed a great evening together engaging with presidential candidate, Secretary Julian Castro, as part of the Democrats Abroad video call series with presidential hopefuls. Guests then marveled at the touching documentary of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's life, entitled RBG, and enjoyed a lively discussion and wine until late in the night.
The Finnish Parliament🌲🌳🌵
Members of Democrats Abroad Finland enjoyed a fabulous night of jazz and lively discussion on September 20th! We gathered at Papa Albert to cheer on American singer Johanna Johnson as she sang over two hours of jazz classics. Thanks to all who turned out for this fun social evening!
DA Finland was happy to walk in the Helsinki Pride Parade on 29 June. This was our second year participating and we were proud to once again show our support for LGBTQ+ rights in Finland and around the world.
On U.S. Memorial Day, a small group of DA Finland members gathered at Hietaniemi Cemetary in Helsinki to pay tribute to all who have fallen in war or conflict.
Democrats Abroad Finland hosted an enlightening tax information evening for our Helsinki community with American CPA Andrew Coleman. We had a great turn out and could have kept our guest speaker there for several more hours with questions about tax requirements for individuals and businesses.
DA Finland held its first Annual General Meeting in February 2019 and elected an Executive Committee. This capped a busy year of events and organizing to get out the vote for the mid-term elections and establish an official DA Country Committee in Finland. Thanks to everyone who has participated in and supported this effort.
Looking forward, we have some exciting events planned for the coming months. Keep an eye on this site and follow our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/dafinland/) for details.
