    Condeco - Fredsgatan in Göteborg, Sweden

    Stop gun violence meetup

    In response to recent mass shootings – including school shootings (again!) – we’ll be at Condeco-Fredsgatan in downtown Göteborg 13.00-16.00 Saturday June 4 in their wonderful upstairs “living room” where we’ll console each other and help anyone who would like to register to vote or request absentee ballots.

    Help us stop gun violence! To do that, we need to elect Democrats all up and down the ballot, especially a few more senators committed to breaking the filibuster!

    Meet us at Condeco on Fredsgatan (at Harry Hörnes Plats near Kungsportsplatsen – also not far from Brunnsparken). We’ll be UPSTAIRS IN BACK with a small sign or flag so you can find us. (Please get something to eat or drink on your way in.)

    We’ll use VoteFromAbroad (https://www.votefromabroad.org/) to register voters and request absentee ballots. We’ll have a computer available, but you can also use your cell phone.

    Come join us! Help us elect Democratrs to Stop Gun Violence!

    Hybrid: Web-Ex and Gothenburg in Göteborg, Sweden

    Demystifying the Democratic National Committee (DNC) - Afterwork with Democrats Abroad Western Sweden

    You are invited to join Democrats Abroad-Western Sweden Chapter for our June afterwork. Like our recent afterworks, this one will be hybrid - in-person in Göteborg and online on WebEx.

    In November 2020, we held our first DNC event ("Meet the DNC") with our Democrats Abroad members of the DNC, and it was a great success! Six DNC members attended, leading to excellent questions from the audience and spirited discussion.

    For our June afterwork, we'll be continuing that conversation: Discussing the structure and function of the DNC while once again opening the bulk of the time to discussion.

    Joining in-person? At John Scott's Linné, go up one flight, and look for the meeting room.

    Joining online? RSVP for the WebEx link. If you have questions or difficulties connecting, contact Joel Parthemore (see contact info below or message on FB).

    We look forward to seeing you in-person or online!
