DACH Basel has Pride!

Welcome to Pride Month! As we enter the home stretch towards summer, I wanted to touch base with the chapter about quite a few exciting and important developments.

  • We held our chapter Annual General Meeting on May 14. If you weren't able to attend, you can see what we discussed on this PowerPoint presentation.
    We have a lot of great ideas and opportunities coming up, so please join us and get involved when and where you can!
  • Many of us woke up on May 31 with 34 reasons to be happy. If that inspired you to take action, may I suggest that you donate to DACH? We still need Democrats to win up and down the ballot in November, so fundraising is critical right now. Our voter outreach efforts are the most cost effective way to reach voters and potential voters, so please consider becoming a donor or sustaining donor today!

  • Speaking of reaching voters, we invite you to Design Your Democracy by entering our poster design competition! DA Switzerland will be rolling out VoteFromAbroad.org ads all over Switzerland this summer and YOUR design could be one of them!

    Submit all designs to [email protected] by 11:59 PM on June 16, 2024!

    Not only could your design be seen in trams and busses across the country, but if your design is chosen for publication, you'll win CHF 150!

    All designs must:

    • remain nonpartisan,

    • promote VoteFromAbroad.org,

    • have space for a QR code,

    • target US citizens living in Switzerland,

    • be optimized for use as A4 flyers and larger,

    • and be submitted as a .PNG or .PDF.

I look forward to seeing you all soon!

Democratically yours,
