We are excited to announce that Democrats Abroad is hosting a Global Presidential Primary voting center in Leipzig!

On March 3 (Super Tuesday) and Sunday, March 7, 2020, Democrats Abroad members will have the opportunity to vote IN PERSON for their Democratic presidential candidate of choice at our polling station at the GRASSI Museum für Völkerkunde. The Deutsch-Amerikanisches Institut Sachsen (DAIS) will be organizing a speaker and side events, so come to hang out too!

This week, join us a film screening of Pariah on Wednesday and a planning meeting on Sunday. Check out the details below, RSVP and tell your friends! We look forward to seeing you there.

To ensure that as many Americans as possible in our region can vote, we are looking for volunteers to assist at the voting center. No prior experience is necessary. If you want to help out on March 3 and/or March 7, please sign up using the links below. You may register for multiple shifts if you choose.

Recipient of the 2011 Sundance Excellence in Cinematography Award, Pariah is a semi-autobiographical coming-out/coming-of-age story. The protagonist, a 17-year-old, African-American New Yorker named Alike, is on a journey to come to terms with, and ultimately embrace, her identity as a lesbian. The event features an introduction by Mascha Lange of the Institute of American Studies Leipzig.

A group of Democrats Abroad Leipzig-Halle members will be at the screening, and we’d love to see you there!
