    The Black liberators of the Netherlands - Black History Month Talk

    Join us. All are welcome.
    In honor of Black History Month, learn about 172 African-American soldiers who are buried at Margraten, the American military cemetery in South Limburg where 8,301 Americans are buried and 1,772 names are on the Wall of the Missing. Buried here is also Pvt. 1st Class Willie F. James - Congressional Medal of Honor recipient. Every grave is adopted by local families and most of the locals have connected with the families of “their” soldiers. For reasons, economic and otherwise, this is not true for the African-American soldiers. Our guest speaker, Mieke Kirkels has authored three books and works with the Veterans History Project of the Library of Congress and here with blackliberators.nl to change this and to tell the stories that must be told.
     
    900,000 African Americans served in the US Army during WWII.

    DA SPEAKER SERIES: NINA TURNER ON RACE RELATIONS IN THE U.S.

    Join Democrats Abroad on Thursday, February 21st from 1pm to 2pm EST (DC time) as we speak with Our Revolution President, Senator Nina Turner, in a Black History Month webinar and Q&A.
     
     
    Note: this is an online event, so you will need an internet connection in order to attend.
     
    Since the 2016 Presidential elections there has been an increasing culture of divisive rhetoric throughout the country. During the webinar we will discuss the state of race relations in the U.S. with Turner. She will outline her thoughts on a way forward and the belief that the Democratic Party - and all Americans - must condemn all forms of racism and reject division as we move towards the 2020 elections and beyond.
     
    About our speaker:
    Nina Turner is the president of Our Revolution, which was founded in August 2016 to perpetuate and organize the political coalition that formed during Senator Bernie Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign. Previously, she served in the Ohio State Senate, where she advocated for progressive causes such as education and healthcare reform, and was the Democratic nominee for Ohio Secretary of State and a strategic leader of the Ohio Democratic Party. Politico included her in their Playbook Power List of 18 people to watch in 2018. Outside of the political arena, Turner has decades of experience as a college professor and motivational speaker.

    (Note: the Zoom link might not be sent immediately on RSVP but may only be ready the day before or on the very day of the talk.)

    Women's March on Amsterdam 2019

    2019 is not just about women.

    It is about all of us (f/m/x). In every way. ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 Because all oppression is connected.

    “There is no thing as a single-issue struggle, because we do not live single-issue lives", Audre Lorde wrote in 1982, speaking not just as a woman - but as a black woman, with roots deep in the Caribbean. She spoke as a lesbian, a mother, a lover, an activist, a child of immigrants, a feminist, a womanist, a scholar, a poet, and, in her words, "a warrior".

    Just like you. You didn't only march with us because of your gender.

    You marched for your right to be who you are - and you are not just 'one thing'.

    When you stood up against harassment, you did that not just for yourself. You did that for the person next to you. For the loved ones in your life who have been violated in the streets, or clubs, or their own homes and schools.

    When you yelled 'MY BODY MY RIGHTS', you made it clear you have the right to share it with whoever you want - for pleasure, not pain. And that they (f/m/x) have those same rights as you do. Including living without fear, with respect, equal pay and having the same right to justice regardless of skin color, income, religion or ability.

    Our rights are not up for negotiation.

    When people beat someone down - either a trans woman with their fists, a teenager wearing hijab, or a black man with their words -, it's an assault on all of our rights. That’s why we’re taking to the streets. Not to be ‘a voice for someone’ – but to amplify voices.

    When our voices are welcomed or heard more than someone else’s voice, we have a responsibility to step up. We acknowledge that, and we stand firmly with and behind all of the progressive activist voices in the Netherlands. We're all in this together - so let's be heard as one voice, but represented by all of us.

    Unapologetically feminist, anti-racist and inclusive. That's what 2019 is about. Get ready; we did not come to play. 🔥🔥
