Discussion with representatives of Republicans Abroad and Democrats Abroad in the Czech Republic.

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. According to a Pew Research Center Survey conducted in 2019, both Democrats and Republicans are worried about bad public schools, unaffordable healthcare, and the prospect of shrinking retirement funds (Social Security primarily). 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 American Center to take a stand on those significant issues.
