    A 21st-Century Economic Bill of Rights

    How do we reverse increasing income inequality in the United States? A 21st-Century Economic Bill of Rights would guarantee all people residing in the United States the right to the essentials of a good life, regardless of their income, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or country of origin. Join our guest speakers to learn more about this progressive proposal and what we can do to implement it.


    Confirmed speakers:

    • Harvey J. Kaye: American historian and sociologist. Author of several books, including “Thomas Paine and the Promise of America” and “The Fight for the Four Freedoms.” He is Professor Emeritus of Democracy & Justice Studies and the Director of the Center for History and Social Change at the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay.
    • Alan Minsky: Executive Director of the Progressive Democrats of America and a lifelong activist, who has worked as a progressive journalist, as Program Director at KPFK Los Angeles, and coordinator for Pacifica Radio’s national coverage of elections.

    Here are some resources to prepare for the event:

  • Global Presidential Primary Elections March 3 and 10

    Tuesday, March 3

    Hall Victor Hugo
    60, avenue Victor Hugo, Luxembourg
    11:30 am to 7:45 pm

    Tuesday, March 10

    Hall Victor Hugo
    60, avenue Victor Hugo, Luxembourg
    3:00 pm to 7:00 pm

    In just two weeks, Democrats Abroad will kick off our Global Presidential Primary, giving you the chance to help select the Democratic Presidential candidates our delegates will vote for in Milwaukee this summer. Starting February 18th, you'll be able to download your Primary ballot from the Democrats Abroad, vote it, and email or post it back in. You can also wait until our Primary week and vote in-person in Luxembourg March 3rd and 10th.

    Am I eligible?

    If you’re a Democrat Abroad member and you haven’t voted (or plan to vote) in any other 2020 state presidential primary/caucus, you’re eligible to vote in the Global Presidential Primary. You can also bring a friend or family member (or sign up online) and they can become a Democrats Abroad member and vote in the primary in Luxembourg.

    What if I can’t join a voting event in person?
    If you can’t join us at our events in Luxembourg, you can vote remotely. Look for your primary ballot in your inbox on February 18, or download it from our site.

    Do votes in the Global Presidential Primary count? Why should I participate in the GPP instead of voting in my state’s presidential primary?

    Yes your vote counts! In fact, you could even say that votes in the GPP count even more. Tens of thousands of people will participate in the global primary, but millions will vote in your home state. That means that your vote in the Global Presidential Primary is more powerful than voting in your state primary. In fact, it’s 4 times more powerful!

    I vote in my state. Can I vote in the GPP and my state primary?

    You can only vote in a presidential primary once. If you vote in the global primary and want to vote in your state for the down-ballot primary races (like for your congressperson), you can! Just skip the presidential section on your state ballot.

    Would you like to volunteer for the GPP on March 3 and 10?

    If you would like to participate in the GPP as a volunteer on March 3 and 10 we would love to have volunteers be a part of this special day. It is a great way to feel a part of Democrats Abroad and meet other members and experience the excitement of our voice. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Natalie Bachiri at [email protected]

    Interested in more details? Here are our top Primary Questions answered.

    We appreciate your activism, interest and efforts to vote, and hope you take this opportunity to weigh in on who Democrats Abroad will cast our votes for at the National Democratic Convention in July!

    Healthcare Stories: Luxembourg's Universal Healthcare Cannot Be Beat #DAresists #Medicare4all

    Luxembourg's Universal Healthcare Cannot Be Beat #DAresists #Medicare4all

    We have universal healthcare here in Luxembourg. The first time I went to the doctor with my son it cost €30 ($35) and all but €3 was reimbursed two weeks later. When I went to the pharmacy for his antibiotics it cost just €1.73. When I went to get a check up at my GP for my thyroid again it cost €3. When I went for my blood tests, which would have cost at least $2,000 in the US, they charged me €0. Both my children are getting orthodontic treatment which when I left Seattle two years ago would have cost about $20,000 per child if we were lucky. Here it will cost less than €1,000 out-of-pocket by the time we are done. We don't have insurance premiums, we don't have insurance cards with co-pays and different levels of service. Everyone is treated the same here. That my friends is what universal healthcare is like in Luxembourg.

DA is wonderful as we all need to make the US and the world a better place. So many wonderful people are working with all of the Caucuses. I met so many amazing people here in this group and we all are trying to get back our democracy.
