March Meeting: Women's Rights Movements Today in 🇺🇸& 🇩🇪

This Tuesday, join us for our March meeting, where we'll focus on women's rights movements in the U.S. and in Germany, looking at the Equal Rights Amendment and the Paritätsgesetz.

We'll also have a brief recap of the highlights from the Heidelberg meeting and present a new way of organizing events, for which we need YOUR HELP!

Mark your calendar for March political pub night on Wednesday March 20th – we'll be trying out a new location: Lir Irish Bar between Tiergarten & Moabit. Details below.

Report from Heidelberg AGM

Members from Democrats Abroad Berlin travelled down south to Heidelberg to participate in Democrats Abroad Germany's 2019 Annual General Meeting. Participants came from all of Germany's 12 chapters, to share and reflect on our organization's efforts to get out the vote during 2018, organize and plan for the upcoming presidential primaries and elections, and elect our new Germany-wide leadership.

Local leaders Diego Rivas(Berlin Chair), Emily Lines(Berlin Vice Chair), and Powen Shiah(Berlin Communication and Press Coordinator) were all elected to the position “DPCA Voting Representative,” meaning that they will represent Germany's Democrats Abroad members to the Democratic Party Committee Abroad (DPCA). The DPCA is the governing organization of Democrats Abroad and is equivalent to a state party committee.
