    Women's Caucus Dinner & Discussion: Voter Suppression

    There are large groups of people who are being excluded from the voting process and whose voices are not being heard. In 2020, voter suppression is still happening, particularly among minority communities.

    Join the Women’s Caucus for a discussion over dinner on voter suppression, how it should especially be on our radar during Black History Month, and what citizens abroad can do about it.

    Outside London? We Want to Hear from You!

    Ahead of the Global Presidential Primary in March 2020, we'd like to build a community of DA members throughout the country, so that when the time comes for us to vote, we're ready and mobilized. Already we've heard from members in Berkshire, South Wales, and the Cotswolds. We're working to put together groups in these areas. We'll help you to provide organizing support from our Voter Registration and GOTV teams and explain the Global Presidential Primary in detail. Email vice-chair@democratsabroad.org.uk for more information.
