    Unite Against Hate Rally in Stockholm

    Democrats Abroad Sweden Chair, Alex Lange, addresses the rally

    Simultaneously with chapters in Western Sweden and Skåne, on Saturday, Aug 26th, we held a rally to unite against hate in Stockholm to commemorate the victims of white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, VA, and to stand up and send a clear signal that hate has no place in America.

    More than 50 attendees came in Stockholm alone, and across Sweden more than 100 showed up to stand against hatred while President Trump is failing to do the same.

    Thank you to all who attended, and to all the speakers, poetry performers, and musical contributions who made this event a powerful experience for all involved.

    John Scott's Pub Avenyn in Göteborg, Sweden

    Tax Event!

    Tis the season for Americans abroad to realise that June 15 is actually not all that far away, and they really do need to figure out how to do their taxes. But, never fear - Democrats Abroad is here to help! We are hosting a Tax Event Tuesday, May 28 at 6 pm at John Scott’s pub on Avenyn, with Lisa Stefani as our keynote speaker. 

    Lisa Stefani is an American Enrolled Tax Agent, specialising in business and personal tax preparation. She (now) lives in Gothenburg and has very kindly agreed to come speak to us again about filing from abroad! She will be giving tips and answering questions about international filing, the IRS, and why the American tax code is like it is. So, bring a friend, grab a pint, and come learn how to improve your American tax experience!
