On Sunday, February 21st, the Madrid chapter of Democrats Abroad (DA) will be hosting the event All Power To All The People: Black Organizing From The Civil Rights Movement To #BlackLivesMatter, where with the help of their two speakers (Nicole Pearson and Stevie Evans) they will be discussing the paradox of citizenship for Black Americans. Click here for more information about the event and to RSVP.
To add even another level of interest and excitement, DA will also be participating in the Global Town Hall, an opportunity for both the Clinton and Sanders campaigns to field questions from Americans living abroad. They will be incorporating their event into the Global Town Hall by asking the campaigns questions regarding race and Black history.
Participating in the Town Hall for each campaign will be:
– Jake Sullivan, Hillary Clinton’s top Foreign Policy Advisor, will join DA from the Clinton campaign. Mr. Sullivan served as Secretary Clinton’s Director of Policy Planning at the State Department. He also served as Vice President Joe Biden’s National Security Advisor and was a main architect of the Iranian nuclear talks.
– Bernie Sanders has yet to confirm the exact person who will be speaking with them.
So start thinking of questions you want to ask the campaigns, and join DA on this Sunday!
