    We'll talk to President Herman about the role of the ACLU in voter protection work across the US and how Democrats Abroad can get involved in protecting our votes, and those of Americans in the US too.

    About our speaker: 

    Susan N. Herman was elected President of the American Civil Liberties Union in October 2008, after having served on the ACLU National Board of Directors, as a member of the Executive Committee, and as General Counsel.

    The American Civil Liberties Union, now in its one hundredth year as the premier defender of a broad range of American civil rights and civil liberties, currently lists voting rights as one its top priorities.  The ACLU is working through litigation, proposed legislation, and ballot referenda to enhance access to voting for all and to end anti-democratic processes like gerrymandering.  Learn about these efforts and the ACLU’s new community organizing program, People Power, which seeks to enlist volunteers to promote voting rights through state-specific programs.

    Herman holds a chair as Centennial Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School, where she teaches courses in Constitutional Law and Criminal Procedure, and seminars on Law and Literature, and Terrorism and Civil Liberties.

  • Grab a Candle and Share your Light – Farewell Obama, 20 Jan 2017

    Farewell and Thank You Obama Vigil
    20 January 2017, Szabadság tér, Budapest, Hungary
    HU Obama Farewell -Jan 2017
    8 years ago on the day of President Obama’s first Inauguration, Democrats Abroad and other Americans gathered to celebrate with candlelight and song in Budapest’s Szabadság tér (Liberty Square) next to the US Embassy to celebrate a new era of hope for America and it’s place in the world.  

    Our gathering in 2008 was documented by local media and joined by other groups also seeking political reform.  Here is a short clip of the event from a Hungarian news portal: 

    During the last hour of President Obama’s administration, on 20 January 2017, we returned again to the same square to close out this chapter in American history.  Around 50 members of Democrats Abroad came together to sing American anthems and to share with each other some of the Obama accomplishments that we found most significant.  Participants spoke out expressing the importance of: America regaining respect in the world, the Affordable Care Act, Dignity, Net Neutrality, Marriage Equality, Economic Recovery, improving the rights of women in the workplace, and having a president with the ability to speak in complete grammatical sentences. 

    Our DA-Hungary Chair, Marylin Ball-Brown, led the group in singing This Land is Your Land, America the Beautiful, and We Shall Overcome.  As a trained opera singer, she then closed out the event by singing Amazing Grace.  Many in the crowd had eyes filled with tears as we bid farewell to the Obama Presidency.

    Budapest Obama Farewell Vigil -Jan 2017
    Several from the group gathered after the event at the nearby Cafe Liberté to warm up and to share thoughts on how we can work to sustain the Obama legacy of achievement in the challenging years to come.  Our thanks to DA-HU member Amy Modly for her extensive work in helping to coordinate the event with the local police office.
