Polarized America: What Still Unites the U.S.?


The Divided States of America

Location: DAZ, Charlottenplatz 17, 70173 Stuttgart
Admision: free
Language: English
Duration: 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

Recently, Democrats and Republicans have been able to agree on one thing: equal pay for the U.S. women’s national soccer team, saying that competitive success and not gender should be the measurement of the salary. Even though Democrats and Republicans are at odds with each other on a wide range of policies, there are still major topics, such as infrastructure, on which they can agree upon.

In the discussion, we will investigate further common ground between the two parties. Additionally, the 2020 presidential race is shaping up to be another game-changer internally and could potentially help amend the gap between Democrats and Republicans or separate them even further on opposite ends of a spectrum. Representatives of both the Democrats Abroad and Republicans Overseas will meet at the DAZ to take a stand on those significant issues.

With: Kelsey McLendon, Chair of Democrats Abroad Germany – Stuttgart Chapter, Michael D. Pierce, PhD, Republicans Overseas Germany
Moderated by:
Gregory Lemon, Stuttgart
