Join us for a voting rights meeting co-hosted by the PNR Voting Rights group and Black Caucus. As we continue to prepare for the midterms we’ll start with a brief phone banking teach-in, then consider key issues affecting the health of our democracy, how gerrymandering has impacted the political landscape and what efforts are being made to create an environment in which everyone's vote counts. We hope that you can make it for a glass or two and a discussion about a most important aspect of ensuring wins for the Democratic Party in the future.

Incisive talk from Prof. Fran Moore of UC Davis on US progress toward climate goals since the Paris Agreement. Key takeaway: US and the world must seriously step up decarbonization efforts, to keep global warming below 2°C and prevent severe economic and environmental impacts. Key action point: Vote Democrat down ballot this November and every election going forward, to put the US government back on track on environmental policy.

Since the start of 2018, the DAUK voter registration team has been very busy, holding drives at Arcadia, University College London, SOAS University, Queen Mary University, Canary Wharf, Cadogan Hall, Fordham University Study Abroad, New York University Study Abroad, Foundation International Education, Richmond University, Facebook, women’s clubs, international schools and several DAUK events. We’ve also held three training sessions for new volunteers and supplemented our efforts with social media, an effective way to steer citizens to votefromabroad.org.
More drives are in the works, and we’re gearing up for even more in the fall, when all study abroad students will need absentee ballots for the general election on November 6. However, we need help finding new locations and getting access to some old ones, where our contacts have moved on (London School of Economics and Kings College, to name two). We also want to reach out to many more American alumni associations. If you can help, write email@example.com. Huge thanks goes to the entire DAUK Voter Registration Team!
