As part of the worldwide Women´s March, we will be joining millions in a peaceful demonstration that focuses on the need to preserve a healthy democracy, in which the inclusion and participation of women plays an essential role. For the past two years, Democrats Abroad Hamburg has organized a March for Democracy because of the threat to the progress of women and minorities, and the steady erosion of democratic principles beginning in January 2017. This tendency has only increased worldwide during the past two years and affects each and every one of us regardless of nationality, race, sex, religion, age, or social status. A march for and with women is a march for the future of every democracy!We wish to celebrate the successful candidacy and election of so many women to the House of Representatives and State offices in November, but recognize this as just a first step to renewing our commitment to a healthy democracy, including: universal health care, protection of the environment, humane immigration policies, sensible gun laws, protection of voting rights... and the list goes on and on.Tell us what you care about! Join us and make your voices heard! You are encouraged to bring your own signs, plus family and friends. We will also be providing posters.Democrats Abroad represents the millions of American citizens living overseas and their interests as citizens to the United States. These marches are organized in solidarity with the March in Washington and are planned in front of US embassies and consulates (where possible) to send the strongest message to representatives in the US. It is the policy of the Democratic Party not to comment on or interfere with the affairs of other states and the Women's March makes no claim to do so. If German, or other foreign, groups choose to participate in our marches, it does not imply or indicate our endorsement of their cause or mission. Our only interest is to represent the voice of Americans living abroad to the US government.SATURDAY, 19 JANUARY, 2019ASSEMBLE AT THE HAMBURGER RATHAUS STARTING AT 13:00MARCH BEGINS AT 13:30 with words of welcome and speakers and

The Heidelberg Chapter is marching in support of the 2019 Global Women’s March. The theme for the March this year is “Ending violence against women”, and we are using this platform to spread awareness and raise support for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).
When: January 19th 2019, 13:30 start (finish around 16:30)
Where: Meeting point is Friedrich-Ebert-Platz
Democrats Abroad will be at the start with their banner, so look for us there. (This didn’t happen last year due to our commitment to set up the sound system at the end, but Nancy guarantees she will be at the start with the banner this year!).
It would be great if you make a sign that supports the above-mentioned themes, wear warm clothes and join us. Perhaps we can get together for a warm meal afterwards. Look for our stand at the end of the March for details on that. The March route will be the same as the past two years, starting at Friedrich-Ebert-Platz and finishing at the Heidelberger Rathaus at the Marktplatz.
Look forward to seeing you there!
