May 25 - Back from D.C.

What a whirlwind of a week we just had. Thank you to so many leaders from around the world for attending the DA Global Meeting either in person or on webex, and then to all the great door knockers who let Congress know that Americans abroad have a voice we know how to use! For more details on the meetings and door knocks, check out the day by day accounts for meeting days 1, 2, 3, and 4 plus our two days of doorknocks

While our teams were working their way through the halls of the Capitol, Alex Montgomery (our newly elected International Vice Chair) and I were getting to know and meeting with DNC staff. Many of them are as new in their positions as we are, and it was a pleasure to be able to introduce Democrats Abroad to them as we made our rounds, and meet others who had already heard about DA (thanks to our former International Chair Katie Solon and our DNC members!). We were also delighted to be able to be on Dems Live with Keith Ellison and Congresswoman Maloney and so many DA leaders.  

I'm back in Prague now and Alex is back in Hong Kong. We're working on rolling out Resistance Summer plans which we'll be writing more about shortly. Thank you for your continued work and enthusiasm as we move towards 2018 - it is much appreciated! 

If you have any questions in the meantime, let me know at info@democratsabroad.org. I am looking forward to working with you all.
