Extraordinary Global Event Not To Be Missed!

Extraordinary Global Event Not To Be Missed!

THE CAMPAIGNS TO SPEAK DIRECTLY TO DEMOCRATS ABROAD!

 

Democrats around the world will participate in a Global Town Hall this Sunday, February 21, at Noon eastern time (that's 6pm in Europe).  The Clinton and Sanders campaigns will be speaking directly to us via a webex video connection, and responding to our questions.  This will be a historic event--the first time ever that DA has been addressed directly by presidential campaigns during a primary--and you will not want to miss it.  Joining us to answer our questions will be Jake Sullivan, Hillary Clinton's top Foreign Policy Advisor, and Senator Bernie Sanders, candidate.

YOU CAN JOIN THE TOWN HALL IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME!  

Joining us from the Clinton campaign is Jake Sullivan, Hillary Clinton's top Foreign Policy Advisor.  Mr. Sullivan served as Secretary Clinton’s Director of Policy Planning at the State Department. He also served as Vice President Joe Biden’s National Security Advisor and was a principal architect of the Iranian nuclear talks.   He could be the National Security Advisor in a future Clinton Administration. 

The person joining us from the Sanders campaign needs no introduction: Senator Bernie Sanders himself!  No, you didn't read that wrong - the Senator informed us on Thursday night that he would connect to the call.  So this is truly a historic event for Democrats Abroad.

YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS OUT ON THIS EXCEPTIONAL EVENT.   RSVP NOW!  

You can connect to the event with your computer. Instructions to connect will be provided when you RSVP, and we ask that contribute 25 euros to participate in this landmark event.  And even though it is on a closed network, the number of connections are limited, so you'll want to ACT NOW.   

It's short notice to be sure, and there's just not enough time for most DA chapters to organize any "official" event for this.  But YOU can!  Why not invite some friends over and have a House Party?  EMAIL US, and we'll provide you with information to get set up.  

On the RSVP page, scroll down and click on the RSVP button, and you'll be taken to the donation page.  Information to connect to the event will be sent to you later, as will a form by which you can submit your questions for consideration.  Rest assured, both candidates are going to be asked about FATCA, CBT, and taxation!

THIS WILL BE AN EXTRAORDINARY TOWN HALL THAT EVERY AMERICAN ABROAD WILL WANT TO ATTEND!
