Democrats Abroad is the official Democratic Party arm for the millions of Americans living outside the United States. We strive to provide Americans abroad a Democratic voice in our government and elect Democratic candidates by mobilizing the overseas vote.

Democrats Abroad has committees throughout Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. These Country Committees keep Americans abroad informed of their rights and help them participate in the U.S. political process. A support office is maintained in Washington, D.C.

Democrats Abroad is recognized as a "state" Party by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and is represented on the DNC by eight voting members, as well as at the quadrennial Democratic National Convention.

    Humans of DA -- Meet Laurie Gayle, Humanitarian Relief Worker

    Democrats Abroad speaks with Laurie Gayle, Humanitarian Officer and Deputy Chair of Communications for Social Media about her experience of the refugee crisis, life in Scotland, and why she’s involved with Democrats Abroad. Ten years ago and after stints living in England and Ireland, native Texan Laurie Gayle settled in Edinburgh, Scotland, and felt immediately at home. “My grandfather was born here,” Laurie explains. “I’m a proud Texan and there is something that aligns between the strong identities that both Texans and Scots have.  And of course, we both love fried food, live music and the bottle of whisky isn’t that far away.” Laurie, who currently directs DA’s Facebook and Twitter channels as Deputy Director of Communications – Social Media, was prompted to join Democrats Abroad when a call to action was published on Facebook to recruit an entire new Chapter Committee in Scotland.  “The only way to run for a leadership position in Democrats Abroad is to become a member,” she recalls. “It only takes two minutes to join, so I did and shortly after I was elected Chair of the Scottish Chapter of Democrats Abroad.”

    SpeakEasy: Tuesday, July 26 Chess Game at the Conventions

    The Rhone-Alps chapter of Democrats Abroad France (DAF) is hosting the July Edition of their monthly SpeakEasy in Grenoble on Tuesday, July 26 from 7pm to 9pm. 

    It's the perfect hybrid of a Happy Hour and a Safe Haven in which to discuss politics. ....... and maybe even to bring about world peace.

    chess piecesSub-titled this time around: "Chess Game at the Conventions" Edition, we will be discussing convention preparations in terms of speakers, sponsors, planned demonstrations and other aspects of the conventions.

    By the time of the SpeakEasy, we will know whether the GOP’s palace coup was effective. And the Democrats will just be getting started.

    How much of Bernie Sanders’ influence will we see on the Democratic Party Platform? And should we be concerned about "server gate?"

    In addition, whatever your profession / expertise / interest, whether it be environment, healthcare, education, supreme court nominee or any other topic, we are interested in discussing those current trends. 

    Bring your friends as well.
