After campaigning in Santa Barbara, CA for the Democrats in both 2008 and 2012, taking the oath of US citizenship in 2008 was not something I did lightly. I believe that with such great privilege comes responsibility - even duty  to protect the United States and other citizens. When Obama was elected in 2008, I felt safe and hopeful. Combined, I have lived in the US with my US born husband and fellow-dual citizen daughters for almost 2 decades; and, I am grateful that President Obama was Potus for eight of those years, and that Justin Trudeau in Prime Minister in Canada now that I am back in Toronto. 

I joined Democrats Abroad before the 2016 election because I wanted to participate in politics with like-minded US citizens. Now I am involved because I fear America's democracy and freedom are under attack and that it will take all concerned to limit and contain the threat.
