This coming Tuesday (April 2nd, 2019), join us for an exciting Democrats Abroad event in Berlin:
Climate Change: Individual vs. Collective Action
with Georg Kössler(Green member of Berlin state parliament) &
Lubomila Jordanova(Founder of Plan A)
Immediate action is needed to protect our environment and to drastically decrease carbon emissions. Facing this imminent threat brings up the question: what can I do?
We'll discuss the multiple political avenues of addressing climate change. Is individual action enough? If not, what type of collective political action is needed?
We're excited to welcome special guests Georg Kössler, Green politician (MdA) in the Berlin state parliament (Abgeordnetenhaus von Berlin), spokesperson on the climate, environment, fair trade, and club culture for the German Green Party in Berlin, and Lubomila Jordanova from Plan A, a data-driven action platform in the fight against climate change.
P.S. Live in Dresden? Know someone who lives in Dresden and wants to be part of the ever expanding Democrats Abroad Dresden? Scroll down to "Upcoming Events" for details on Taco Tuesday in Saxony's capital!
Calling for Virginia: 1 Vote Flips the State Legislature!
The majority in the Virginia state legislature was decided last election by a coin-toss. This had real repercussions, like the deciding vote on ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment (guaranteeing women's rights in the Constitution) being decided by a Republican (spoil alert, it was voted down).
Democrats Abroad's main goal is to make sure that every Democrat living abroad votes and to help swing elections in the U.S. As a practice run for 2020, help us reach all Virginia voters living abroad and register them to vote from abroad: 2019 Virginia state elections will decide the majority in both the House of Delegates and the State Senate.
