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!
The Global Black Caucus is hosting an open roundtable discussion once every three months for DA leaders and volunteers, and you are invited to be a vital part of the collective advocating on issues of African-Americans not just in the U.S. but all around the world.
During these meetings we CONNECT, LISTEN, SUPPORT & EMPOWER each other, exchange thoughts and ideas, plan possible co-sponsored events and ultimately strengthen our community.
The meetings will be of duration of 90 mins and be held on Zoom.
The first Global Black Caucus Global Meeting will take place on November 30th, 7 AM EST Zoom (next meeting dates: 2022 -Jan. 30th, Mar. 31st, May 31st…)
We are looking forward to having great conversations with you all.

As we asserted back in July: Infrastructure negotiations likely will lead to make or break legislation for climate change mitigation, millions who are skeptical about our two-party government, and Democrat prospects for the midterms. Since then, our Democratic caucuses in the House and Senate have been unable to deliver. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and Build Back Better Act remain stuck in limbo, perhaps just two votes short of success. Join members of proDA to learn more about and discuss the status of the negotiations, the prospects for passage, and the consequences of further delay. We will advocate for action, urging all of us to intensify our efforts. Time is short and so, too, is the patience of those whose needs are not being met!

According to the 2020 U.S. Census, the Asian population is the fastest-growing racial and ethnic group in the U.S.
The impact of this large group was evident following the 2020 November election with much analysis pointing to the strategic and important role played by Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) voters. During the Georgia run-off election, both the Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff campaigns had organizers focused specifically on the AAPI vote in Georgia. Looking ahead to the 2022 midterms, it will continue to be critical to get AAPI voters to turn-out. But what do we know about this voting group? What challenges do we face and how do we help get out the vote among the AAPI community in 2022?
Join the Democrats Abroad AAPI Caucus to hear from Christine Chen, co-Founder and Executive Director of Asian Pacific Islander American Vote (APIAVote). Christine and her team at APIAVote conduct a bi-annual survey on Asian American voters, which provides important information about voting behaviors and opinions. Hear about the findings from their 2020 voter survey and what trends they have noticed over time, as well as the AAPI vote overseas.
Following the discussion with Christine, there will be time to discuss as a group how we can get out the vote among AAPI voters living overseas. All will be welcome to participate and to contribute to developing the AAPI Caucus’ Get Out the Vote plan.
Understanding the diverse AAPI voting population, including barriers and challenges to voting, will be crucial as we move into the 2022 midterms, not just to mobilize voters in the U.S., but also AAPI voters living abroad. RSVP to learn more about activating AAPI voters and how you can support the work of the Democrats Abroad AAPI Caucus.

Have you ever made a successful change in your life? Perhaps you wanted to exercise more, eat less, or change jobs? Think about the time and attention you dedicated to the process. A lot, right? Change is hard. Creating effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of power, privilege, supremacy, and leadership is like any lifestyle change. Setting our intentions and adjusting what we spend our time doing is essential. It’s all about building new habits. Sometimes the hardest part is just getting started. The good news is, there’s an abundance of resources just waiting to empower you to be a more effective player in the quest for equity and justice.
About the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge
- For 21 days, do one action to further your understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity
- This plan includes suggestions for readings, podcasts, videos, observations, and ways to form and deepen community connections. Suggestions are in the following categories:
- Choose one activity per day to further your understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity.
- Diversify your habits by doing some of each.
- Use the tracking chart provided here to stay on course. You can download the editable spreadsheet or a PDF for printing.
- We think understanding white privilege and white supremacy is a powerful lens into the complexities of doing social justice work, so we’ve focused our resources on that specific issue.
