The DAUK Black Caucus has secured a small block of tickets for what is sure to be an interesting and thought-provoking panel discussion. This event is part of the Black Lives Matter History Network conference, taking place at British Library, 22–23 June, in collaboration with the University of Sussex. US and UK Black Lives Matter leaders will talk about why they are a part of BLM, their goals and methods, and the challenges facing the movement. The discussion will be chaired by Althea Legal-Miller, Lecturer in American History and Culture, Canterbury Christ Church University. It is sponsored by the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library. We have a small block of tickets. Please claim yours now by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

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!
Several hundred members convened Sunday 19 March to elect a new slate of officers to lead DAUK. Those standing for the four officer positions addressed the group, followed by a vote via a show of hands. The Executive Committee and Voting Representatives to the Democratic Party Committee Abroad were elected via ballot. Others were elected to the Council by acclimation.
