Global Youth Caucus



  •  

     

    The Global Youth Caucus (GYC) officially launched last month after the 2020 DA Global Meeting and Convention. At the Regional and Global Conventions many of our fellow youth members were elected to be a part of DA 2020 Delegation to the Democratic National Convention. It has never been a more exciting time to be a GYC member. 

    The Global Youth Caucus is working to expand, which means we are looking for more volunteers! There are options to volunteer at the global, national, or chapter level - so pick what commitment is best for you and let us know how you want to get involved.

    Youth Caucus Call-A-Thon

    When? August 8, 2020 – 09:00 to 21:00 CEST; 00:00-12:00 PDT; 03:00-15:00 EDT; 15:00-03:00 HKT

    Where? Online via CallHub

    Why?

    As the GYC, we believe the voice of every eligible voter matters. Therefore, we want to increase voter participation from abroad to ensure victory in November!

    What is it?

    The GYC Call-a-Thon is a fundraising calling marathon. Our phonebankers will make as many calls as they can between 9am-9pm CEST on August, 8, 2020 to remind DA members to request their ballots. The GYC and callers will work together to secure sponsors to help us reach our calling goals and generously provide the funds we need to keep our voter outreach projects going strong through November!

    How can YOU help?

    First, please RSVP to the event. Then, use this form to let us know how many calls you will commit to making during the call-a-thon. In about 1 hour, a caller can make up to 30 calls – that is 30 potential voters reached!

    • We also ask you to find sponsors to donate money to support our efforts. You can share this link with your friends and family to secure pledges for your calling commitment. Your sponsors may donate whatever amount they would like! But remember, the more money we raise, the more voters we will reach! However, we understand this may be a difficult time for many people, so please only do what you can.
    • Please also share this event with other Democrats Abroad members and encourage them to join our effort!
    • If you are unable to participate in the call-a-thon, but would still like to donate money to assist us with our efforts, please do so here.

    Never used Callhub or made calls before?

    Sign up here for a Callhub Training event on August 5!  You'll get a complete walk through and hands on training on how to help DA Get Out The Vote!

    August 13th at 2pm CST: Webinar with Dr. Ben Franta, Climate Activist Extraordinaire
    Bio:Dr. Benjamin Franta is a JD-PhD Candidate at Stanford Law School and the Stanford University
    Department of History. His research investigates the history of climate science and climate denial. He has a PhD in applied physics from Harvard University and was a research fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, where he led a project in the Philippines to understand how to reduce deaths and damages from climate-related disasters. At Harvard he helped to lead the internationally recognized fossil fuel divestment campaign and with co-plaintiffs filed the world’s first fossil fuel divestment litigation. More recently, his investigative piece revealing the US petroleum industry’s knowledge of global warming in the 1950s became one of the top five articles of all time in The Guardian’s “97%” climate section. His work has been cited in the US Congressional Record, translated into twelve languages, and published in Nature Climate Change, The Guardian, Project Syndicate, and other outlets.
