The Democrats Abroad Meet and Greet in Leipzig was a big success! On Sunday, December 8, 2019 thirteen Americans living in the Leipzig, Halle, and Jena regions gathered at SPIZZ Leipzig for an afternoon of friendly conversation and democratic cheer. We had a large table on the second floor with a beautiful view of the Christmas market below. After a short round of introductions, the official part of the meeting commenced. We discussed various ways our group can make a difference this election season, particularly during the Global Presidential Primary in March 2020. The group is looking forward to meeting regularly, and many ideas for future social events, discussion topics, and volunteer opportunities were shared. Our next event in January is already in the works – an information session on impeachment, led by one of our own members. Stay tuned for more details!
