Happy Thanksgiving! It was great seeing everyone at the potluck of side dishes and Turkey Trot this past weekend. Here are some photos (on Facebook) from this weekend:

We’re grateful for all the active members and volunteers who make all our get-togethers, voter outreach, and political events possible.

To round out 2019, our last chapter meeting of the year will be this Tuesday Dec 3, 2019. Bring your favorite holiday sweets for a cookie swap and to appreciate all our volunteers!¬†‚ĖļDetails & RSVP

Our newly minted kiez captains are already organizing get-togethers in their neighborhoods. Scroll down below to find out if there’s one near you.

We’re looking for a temporary Berlin headquarters during 2020 for voter registration and phone banking. Know of an empty office near transit with great internet? Let us know below!

Have you filled out a candidate petition yet? Make sure your favorite Democratic contender makes it onto the Democrats Abroad Global Primary ballot, details below.

Wanted: Location for a Democrats Abroad Berlin headquarters

While we’ve been doing research and getting in touch with potential locations for a temporary 2020 Berlin HQ, we need your help in finding a place.

Do you know of a space that might be available next year? Check out what we’re looking for in a location:

  • Available for at least 6 months (May through October)
  • Central, accessible location
  • Access on nights and weekends
  • Solid internet connection
  • Room for 4-6 people at desks
  • Storage (minimal, just for flyers and voter info material)

That’s the summary — here are more details about what we we’re looking for. Got a lead? Drop us a line: board@demsinberlin.de

Get your 2020 candidates on the primary ballot!

Democrats Abroad’s Global Presidential Primary will take place from March 3-10, 2020. To get on the primary ballot, each candidate needs at least 300 signatures from Democrats Abroad members by January 6, 2020.

Many are just a few signatures from getting on the primary ballot, so visit the candidate petitions page¬†to make sure your favorites make it! You’ll need to¬†log in in to sign, but you can sign as many petitions as you’d like.

Become a Kiez captain for your neighborhood

Berlin is a city of neighborhoods, so we’ve started¬†Kiez Captains¬†to get out the vote and help connect neighbors and volunteers in different areas.

They’re laying the groundwork to mobilize in every corner of Berlin in 2020. It’s a 5-hour a month commitment. Write¬†chair@demsinberlin.de¬†for more info and if you’d like to become a Kiez Captain in your neighborhood.
