The news out of Washington and the U.S. doesn't seem to get any better, does it? Still, We're not letting ourselves get distracted from our progressive goals and building up our organizing muscles. Last Sunday, the Berlin chapter board met for a full-day retreat to plan how we're working towards the elections in 2018 and how to engage more Americans abroad in the political process.
This week, we're jumping right into June with our Tuesday event focusing on refugee policy. Mark your calendars for the American Church in Berlin streetfair on June 17th, political pub night on June 21st at Loretta am Wannsee, a 4th of July BBQ (in lieu of our regular monthly gathering), and the ever-popular Democrats Abroad outreach booth at Lesbisch-Schwules Stadtfest on July 15th & 16th.
Looking forward to seeing you this summer!
June Meeting - Refugee Policy
Join us at our monthly meeting on June 6th, 2017, at 7:30 PM. We will be meeting at Begegnungsstätte Falckensteinstrasse. Continuing our new tradition, we will be having a potluck, so please bring food to share! There will be drinks available (by donation).
This month's focus is refugee policy, and we'll have a brief presentation, followed by discussion, and more details on our summer events.
We'll be at the American Church in Berlin annual streetfair to reach out to Americans living in Berlin, to share what Democrats Abroad is organizing in Berlin, and, of course, registering people to vote.
June Pub Night - Loretta am Wannsee Biergarten
July 4th BBQ Party
Democrats Abroad at LGBT Streetfest
We are excited to be part of the Lesbisch-Schwules Stadtfest (Motzstrassenfest) on July 15th & 15th in Schöneberg. The street festival is an annual highlight for Democrats Abroad Berlin. We will have a booth on both days where we’ll mingle with attendees, sell DA swag, and register Americans abroad to vote. We're looking for volunteers to help out for shifts of a few hours (or more) over the weekend. It's a fun festival with a great atmosphere, so grab a friend and sign up for a shift or two together: https://www.volunteersignup.org/AWPX7
