Costa Rica


DACR is the official country committee for US Democrats living in Costa Rica.  We're an active group who get together to talk politics, learn about issues, register absentee voters and work to ensure more Democrats in state and Federal offices.  DACR usually holds a monthly meeting the last Saturday of the month plus other scheduled special events such as potluck parties, picnics, film showings and fundraisers.  Meetings include invited speakers on U.S. or Costa Rican topical issues.

Our mission is to help Americans living abroad to register to vote and to request their absentee ballots with, to elect Democrats, and to educate Americans living, working, serving, and/or studying abroad about issues and legislation that affects them.

 Democrats Abroad is the official arm of the Democratic Party for US citizens living outside the United States and its territories. The Democratic Party is the only major American political party that affords its members this opportunity. Democrats Abroad holds seats on the Democratic National Committee and sends a voting delegation to its national convention to nominate our candidate for President. Democrats Abroad Costa Rica (DACR) is one of more than 100 country committees of Democrats Abroad, the official affiliate of the Democratic Party for millions living outside of the U.S.

    March Monthly Meeting - Presentation Report Back From Honduras

    March 25th, 2017


    Carol Marujo and Martha Rollins will present a program about Honduras. A coup d'etat in June 2009 removed the democratically-elected president Mel Zelaya from office. Seven years later a human rights delegation visited Honduras to learn about the situation in the country today. Carol and Martha were part of that delegation that traveled to many parts of the country, met with many civil society leaders; the family of the murdered indigenous/environmental rights leader, Berta Cáceres; and the US ambassador to Honduras. This will be a very compelling presentation, don't miss it.
