With Donald Trump taking office and the EU still in crisis, one can say that the year 2017 is going to endanger our democracies even more than 2016.
Yet, I am optimistic as we can witness a lot of growing resistance:
These days, thousands of people protest on the streets in the United States and everywhere in the world. Also, newspapers and media like the Washington Post expand to protect freedom of press and expression.
With the aim of strengthening democracy on the European level and throughout the world, Democracy International is growing also. We are seeking a European Programme Manager and a Global Manager for PR and Community Building.
Please forward this e-mail and the vacancies to everybody you deem suitable for these roles. We need competent and committed people to realise Democracy International's goals. The German poet Hölderlin wrote "Where danger is, grows the saving power also”. Along these lines we have reason for a lot of hope.
P.S.: Democracy International is funded by individual donations. Please support our work!
