We hope you’re enjoying the return of warm weather in Berlin! If you’ll be at Myfest on May Day, stop by The Coalition’s stand if you need help registering to vote or requesting your ballot.
On Thursday, we’re hosting our first phonebanking session to contact Democrats living overseas and helping them vote in upcoming primaries and elections. Join us in getting out the vote.
