Join the Democrats Abroad Global Disability Caucus for a panel discussion where we’ll celebrate and talk about the history of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, provide some context, raise issues and hear from a panel of DA members and guest speakers as they share their own experiences with disability and the challenges, issues and successes they have faced.
We hope to hear what they would want us to know about living with disability as well as what we can do to create a better DA for all members who are experiencing their own challenges. We hope this will be yet another meaningful discussion of many conversations in the coming months and years!
♿️ Event details and guest speaker information coming soon!
Global Disability Caucus Edition of Connect the Dots
Join us for our first member event on October 30th at 9 am Eastern Time. Let's Connect, Learn and Lead Together! Please RSVP below!
At our Global Disability Caucus Edition of Connect the Dots, we’ll share information on how and why we were launched and the mission and objectives as we’ve described them to date. We’ll also do a brief update and then break up into groups so that you can talk with a member of the founding committee to ask questions, share ideas and explore ways to become involved.
“The Future is Accessible!” Please RSVP below and join us on the 30th!
We invite you to sign up to volunteer or to indicate your interest. Click here to sign up! We’re still looking for ASL translators and others who can help build the structure and support to enhance accessibility within DA. We have a number of events in the works and, of course, lots of work to do. We also look forward to building a wonderful community of supportive, committed and creative people with disabilities and allies dedicated to furthering our shared goals.
While there is no donation required to attend, we hope you’ll consider a donation of $10 to support our work to elect Democrats who will fight to make a better life for ALL Americans. Please click here to donate!
As we move towards 2022 and 2024, Democrats Abroad’s newly elected International Executive Committee is determined to make our systems and structures even more diverse, professional, and sustainable––and ultimately more effective for our work ahead.
In order to do so, we are currently building robust global teams and, for the first time ever, doing a call for applications for global caucus, committee, and task force leadership positions. Our goal is to have an inclusive, transparent, and fair appointment process. We need you to be a part of our work!
Applications will be accepted through 11:59 p.m. EDT on August 1, 2021, and after consulting with the DA International Committee, the DA International Chair will make appointments around August 9, 2021. All members of Democrats Abroad are encouraged to apply and to share the call for applications with other U.S. citizens who might be interested.
Caucus Chairs (individual positions for: Asian-American and Pacific Islander, Black, Hispanic, LGBTQ+, Progressive, Veteran and Military Families, Women’s, and Youth Caucuses)
Task Force Chairs (individual positions for: Equal Rights Amendment, Medicare Portability, Reparations, Taxation Task Forces)
