FILM SCREENING IN FRANKFURT
KENYATTA: DO NOT WAIT YOUR TURN FOLLOWED BY AN ONLINE Q&A SESSION WITH MALCOM KENYATTA
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22
The Frankfurt Chapter of Democrats Abroad Germany is hosting an in-person screening of the documentary "Kenyatta: Do Not Wait Your Turn", which offers an electrifying glimpse of the next generation of political leadership in America.
After growing up as a member of the working poor in Philadelphia, Malcolm Kenyatta demonstrated his talent as a community advocate before becoming the first openly LGBTQ person of color ever to be elected to PA's General Assembly when he was just 22.
The follow-up Q&A session will be attended online by both the filmmakers and State Rep. Kenyatta.
CALL FOR RECIPES FOR OUR DAG COOKBOOK
Our Advertising Coordinator Angela Fobbs put forward the fantastic idea of compiling a cookbook of recipes from our members and selling it as a fundraiser to help us get out the vote. The idea is to collect American recipes from our members (modified for use with German ingredients if necessary) and make the book available for sale.
Recipes for your grandmother's potato salad, your own favorite vegan brownies, or anything near and dear to your heart are needed! No recipe is too simple or too fancy to include. Please consider taking the time to help us out so we can make the best and most helpful cookbook possible.
Now it is up to all of us members to submit our recipes using this Google form:
BECOME A SUSTAINING DONOR
The support that our sustaining donors provide each month allows DAG to reliably plan how to use our resources best to get out the vote. Budgeting for our advertising, tabling, and outreach efforts in the run-up to the 2024 election is currently underway, and recurring monthly donations are extremely helpful, so please consider becoming a sustaining donor today.
