Please join us for Democrats Abroad Germany - Munich chapter, July chapter meeting.
In July, we will be celebrating the 4th, and its an opportunity to think about what makes us patriotic. If we have close ties to immigrants, having the chance to celebrate the founding of the US holds special meaning. It could be that during the current to many generations ago, someone in your family made the difficult choice to emigrate from their country and make the US their new home and country. What does patriotism mean to those who made that choice? What does it mean to those who are US citizens now, as a result of that choice?
For our July meeting, we want to hear from our chapter members - do you have any stories to share about your family's journey to the US, or how they have celebrated the US on the 4th? Please reach out (munich(at)democratsabroad(dot)de) and let us know if you want to speak, so we can make sure to hold a spot for you!WHENJuly 14, 2021 at 7pmWHEREZoom - please RSVP for log in details

SENATOR KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND KEYNOTES WOMEN’S ECONOMIC FORUM: RESETTING THE U.S. AGENDA FOR WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT
The return to Democratic leadership has reset the U.S. agenda for women across race, sexual orientation, and geography. This moment calls for bold political, social, and economic investments that lead to shared prosperity and equitable recovery for women.
Join U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand for an important discussion of what is being done, and what must be done, at the Federal and State level to capitalize on this important moment, and to address the policy perspectives we bring as Democrats Abroad.
Senator from NY since 2009, Gillibrand has led legislative action on numerous issues including sexual assault in the military, child nutrition, childcare for members of the Armed Forces, and parental leave.
Our conversation with the Senator will be followed by a panel of leading experts across several issue areas that impact women’s economic status as documented in the 2020 Democrats Abroad Platform and offer policy remedies that root out biases that shut women out.
The Panel will examine four issues within the Platform that are key to reversing inequalities for women: Intersectionality, Economic Inequality, Social Safety Net, and Sexual Identity Equality. Featured Panelists:
Intersectionality: Why Connecting the Dots Matter in the Fight for Women’s Equality - Dr. Ronda Zelezny-Green, Chief Learning Officer, BRK Ujima
Economic Inequality – Building an Inclusive Economy for the Long Term - Dr. Linda Scott, Emeritus Professor, University Oxford
Social Welfare: Assuring A Baseline of Support and Security for Women - Dr. C. Nicole Mason, president/CEO, Institute for Women’s Policy Research (WPR)
The Economic Case for LGBT Equality - Dr. M. V. Lee Badgett, distinguished scholar, the Williams Institute & Professor of Economics, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
The Forum, sponsored by the Global Women’s Caucus Women’s Economic Empowerment Initiative will be presented virtually on Zoom from 3pm-5pm CET. Forum attendees will be invited to join discussion breakout sessions with our panelists at the conclusion of their presentations. This event is open to all DA members, US elected officials, members of academia, and the global expat community.
You won’t want to miss this important exchange with champions of women’s issues.
