The best thing about Biden‘s infrastructure plan? That he has an infrastructure plan. Now begins the work of turning the blueprint into legislation. A volatile dynamic underlies the process: the White House wants a bipartisan deal, but Democrats are preparing to move ahead alone. Solidarity Sundays takes a deep dive into the forces shaping the legislation and what disbursing $2 trillion will look like on the ground.

A chance to come and ask your questions, without needing to sit through a whole training.
Maybe you’ve done the training already and have questions now that you’re starting to do the work yourself. Or maybe you’ve been working with Nationbuilder for a while but you have a particular challenge and would like some help. Or maybe conversation and screensharing is just a better way for you to learn something than a helpdesk ticket.
We’d like to help you get comfortable with the tools we have that will help you to do your work!
Please note: It’s essential to RSVP for the Q&A session, as we won't hold the meeting if there are no RSVPs.WHENMay 19, 2021 at 12pm

Last year, thanks to our first series of six fundraising events and your generosity, we met our fundraising goals. You helped Democrats take back the White House and Senate, and keep the House of Representatives. Now we need to prepare for the 2022 midterm elections so we can win more seats in the House and Senate. We are counting on your generous support so we can implement our voter registration/outreach, and start training our volunteer voting assistants. This is our first event of the season and we hope you will join us!
Join this event for 15.00 Euro or join all events (between now and December) for 75 Euro.
Payment is possible via PayPal or bank transfer.

We are pleased to announce that the next Books Abroad, Feminist Reading Group pick is "The House of Mirth" by Edith Wharton!Voted for by an overwhelming margin in our recent public vote for our next book selection, this book is a wonderful choice for many reasons.Written in 1905, the novel tells the story of a young woman reaching her 29th year, an age when her youth is coming to an end and her marital prospects are becoming slim. "The House of Mirth" traces her descent from privilege to a lonely life on the margins of society.Wharton in The House of Mirth probes her situation like an entomologist. A classic novel by a writer who was controversial in her own rite, it deftly portrays the moral, social and economic restraints on a woman who dared to claim the privileges of marriage without assuming the responsibilities.“The story carries you along even though it takes place in the early 20th century in a world and milieu that are far from us today. It shows us the progress we’ve made, even though we have a long way to go! What’s instructive and worthy of discussion is the question of what makes a feminist,” says Sheila Malovany-Chevallier, the Books Abroad planning team member who nominated the book.We will discuss “The House of Mirth” on Sunday, May 23rd at 2pm CEDT.WHENMay 23, 2021 at 2pmWHERELink information to be provided prior to event
