    Watch the Film Legalize Equality

    The Equal Rights Amendment resolution passed unanimously in Tokyo where we committed to do whatever we can to help get the ERA ratified.  See the resolution here.

    Watch the video "Legalize Equality."  This 30-minute video gives an excellent overview of the Equal Rights Amendment and why it is critical to be ratified.  

    You can watch the video until 31 December 2020 or the ERA passes.

    To receive the streaming link and password, click RSVP and you will receive an email with the information in it.

    Feel free to share the link and password to DA members that want to view it.  However, please do NOT post the link and password on the internet in any way.  Only Democrats Abroad has access for this private screening and we need to honor this special access given by Equal Means Equal and Heroica Films.

    A Democrats Abroad Global Women’s Caucus Event Toolkit

    January is Women’s Rights Month! The fourth Women’s March will take place on January 18th, 2020. This year’s theme will be “March for our Human Rights.” GWC can think of no more fundamental human right than to have sovereignty over one’s own body. 
    We encourage members to participate in marches that will take place around the world and/or plan group meetings around the theme of reproductive rights throughout the month of January and beyond! 

    To help organize your own events, we have put together a  GWC Reproductive Rights Event Toolkit.  All members are invited to choose elements from this collection of activity and event ideas to build their own unique events around our theme.

    We are also grateful to NARAL/Pro-Choice America for making their great materials available to us!

    All you have to do is click, get inspired and organize!

    Books Abroad Reads Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye

    Books Abroad Reads Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye

    A titan of literature passed away in August 2019. Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, era-defining writer, and editor, mentor, professor, activist, and social critic—there are few individuals who have transformed American literature and culture like Toni Morrison.

    Together with the Global Black Caucus, the Books Abroad organizers warmly invite you to join us in reading and discussing Morrison’s revolutionary novel The Bluest Eye. In her 2007 forward to the book, Morrison explains that in this work, she examines “how something as grotesque as the demonization of an entire race could take root inside the most delicate member of society: a child; the most vulnerable member: a female.” During our discussion, we will tackle issues of cultural aesthetics, intersections of race and gender, and the ongoing struggle for black female voices to be heard.

    We look forward to celebrating both the incredible work and woman with you on Sunday, February 9, 2020, at 7:30 a.m. EST/1:30 p.m. CET on WebEx.

    7:30 a.m. – Toronto/Washington D.C.

    12:30 p.m. – London

    1:30 p.m. – Paris/Berlin
