News: 💻Potsdam, Kreuzberg & Leipzig Meetups 🤨Berlin Quiz Night 🗳Voter Help Office Hours

As we continue into a summer of social distance, our calendar is filling up with online events, voter assistance, volunteer opportunities, and more. Please join us and invite a friend to join a virtual event!

This Tuesday, the Potsdam precinct is meeting online and getting organized. If you live in or around Potsdam, stop by and get to know your neighbors. Please spread the word to other Americans in the area. ►RSVP for Potsdam organizing meeting

On Wednesday, Kreuzbergers are getting together after work for a casual online chat and meet-up Stop by to say hi whether you live in the central district or nearby! ►RSVP for Kreuzberg Kiez meetup

Thursday, the Leipzig-Halle precinct is holding their monthly meeting. It's an active group that's growing fast: pass this along to anyone you know in Sachsen! ►Leipzig meeting info

In June, we're planning two big phone banking pushes! On June 11, we'll have a virtual Berlin party: pop into the room and hang out in between making calls to remind fellow Americans to vote from abroad. Phone banking is one of the best ways to reach voters abroad and help them request absentee ballots, especially in 2020.

On Flag Day (June 14) members all across Germany will be Dialing For Democracy, a fundraising call-a-thon. Callers will be calling all day to help meet our outreach goals and their sponsors will help provide critical funds to keep these projects going! ►Find out how you can be a part it.

Last but not least, we're planning an online American quiz night to replace our regular pub nights. Mark your calendar for June 17 and start getting your team together. 

We're looking forward to seeing you on the internet. Take care of yourself!

Office Hours for Voter Help

Since we can't hold in-person events, we're starting online office hours to help U.S. citizens register to vote and request absentee ballots. The first two sessions are on June 10th and June 29th. Sharing the office hours your American friends and colleagues, so we can reach more potential voters!

Would you like to be part of future voter help office hours? Send Berlin GOTV coordinator Amy Herr a message: gotv@demsinberlin.de
