🗣Discuss the Debates 💬🎉Celebrate 4th of July 🇺🇸🕯Lights for Liberty Vigil

We've all been following the reports about humanitarian crisis on the U.S. border, the terrible treatment of immigrants and refugees, especially children, with great anger and even greater resolve to stop it. Scroll down to the "Updates & How YOU can help" section for more details on how to take action.

Have you been watching the first Democratic primary debates? The first night's debate is on YouTube. We'll be getting together to discuss the Democratic debates today (Friday) at Brauhaus Südstern. ►Event Details & RSVP

On Thursday, July 4th, 2019 starting at 6:30pm, we're really looking forward to celebrating Independence Day with you. Let's  come together as an American community in Berlin, especially after all the events of the past few weeks.

We'll have a grill & drinks, plus we're hosting a potluck and a pie-baking contest in the garden at our monthly meeting spot, Begegnungsstätte Falckensteinstraße in Kreuzberg.

Please help us out and RSVP so we can make sure to get enough drinks and hot dogs. We also need a few more volunteers to help the party run smoothly.

Thanks for reading and see you soon!
