    Hispanic Caucus Americas Update October 2020

    Migrant-support organizations and enfranchising migrant children to vote 

    Saturday, October 24, 2020; 15:00 Mexico City time / CDT 

    Please join us for a chat with activists who work to help displaced U.S.-born children of migrants to vote from Mexico, and to improve the conditions in which migrants live in the border towns between the US and Mexico.

    According to estimates, hundreds of thousands, or perhaps even one million children born during the peak years of Mexican migration to the U.S. are living in Mexico, coming of age, and are ready to help determine the outcome of the U.S. elections. Many of them want to vote to give a voice to their family and friends who don't have a voice or a vote in the U.S. and tend to vote progressively. But for them, voting is also about reclaiming a piece of their own identity that has been minimized or even erased by hostile political forces. In the years to come, it is our goal to register as many binational Mexicans with U.S. citizenship living in Mexico as we possibly can. This massive voting block, if mobilized, has the power to change the outcome of elections, but it will take time and resources. Organizing this unique group of U.S. citizens can make strides towards achieving justice for binational communities and affirm not only the validity but also the political power of the binational community.

    Global Runaway

     

    “To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time.” 

    James Baldwin

     

    Will a new wave of Black Americans explore creating a new life outside of the United States? 

     

    Is Blaxit a thing?

     

     

     

     

     

    Join the Global Black Caucus for a panel discussion on Black American migration past and present. We will have panelists from around the world discuss their personal motivations and experiences moving abroad as well as their thoughts on the current situation in the United States. Given its long and enduring history of inequality, is it time for more Black Americans to consider resettling out of the country?

    From slavery to the present, Black Americans have used migration (primarily within the US) as a way to escape the systemic racism found throughout the United States. A multitude of factors including political and economic disenfranchisement, state-sanctioned violence, and discriminatory criminal justice systems have driven Black Americans to pull up their roots in order to build better lives in new places. Will the current political environment drive more Black Americans to consider living abroad?

    View the Documentary "First Vote”

    Asian Americans are the fastest growing population in the U.S. and more than 11 million AAPI will be able to vote in 2020.

    In a newly released documentary, First Vote, Yi Chen follows a cross section of politically engaged Chinese American voters, all first-time voters, during the 2018 midterm elections. This includes a variety of voters: A gun-toting Tea Party-favorite candidate courting GOP votes in the South; a podcaster in Ohio who became a citizen in order to vote for Trump; a progressive journalist confronting Chinese Americans for Trump after moving to a battleground state from Beijing; and a University of North Carolina professor teaching about race and racism in the U.S.

    RSVP to receive the link to view this newly released documentary from the comfort of your own home. Please consider helping us cover the costs of the film license ($202) by making a donation to Democrats Abroad.

    By sharing this film, our goal is to bring awareness to the political influence of the AAPI community and find ways to improve voter outreach.

    When can I watch?

    You'll receive a link you can use to watch the documentary any time between Thursday, October 29 and Tuesday, November 10, 2020

    Books Abroad Reads Isabel Wilkerson’s “Caste”

    The Global Women's Caucus feminist reading group is pleased to announce its next pick, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontentby Isabel Wilkerson. 

    At the end of a transformative year in the struggle for racial equality, this discussion will engage participants who are looking to expand their awareness of how racism shapes American systems and the world at large, including individual lives. 

    Isabel Wilkerson is the Pulitzer Prize winning writer of The Warmth of Other Suns. 

    In “Caste”, she uses "an immersive, deeply researched narrative and stories about real people to show how America today and throughout its history has been shaped by a hidden caste system, a rigid hierarchy of human rankings."

    Thanks to all who joined our discussion of "Good and Mad." We hope this discussion can go even deeper! We look forward to seeing you there!

    When: Dec. 6, 2020, 2 p.m. CET

    As one of the world’s leading feminist philosophers, Butler in The Force of NonViolence: An ethico-political bind shows how an ethic of nonviolence must be connected to a broader political struggle for social equality. Furthermore, she argues that nonviolence is often misunderstood as a passive practice that emanates from a calm region of the soul, or as an individualist ethical relation to existing forms of power. But, in fact, nonviolence is an ethical position found in the midst of the political field – a new twist on a progressive understanding of non-violence!
