Welcome to Democrats Abroad France!
Democrats Abroad France is the official country committee of U.S. Democrats living in France. DAF is one of the original founding members of Democrats Abroad and is among its largest and most active members. We offer a wide range of activities to our members, including voter registration assistance and education, monthly member Meet-Ups to discuss political issues and diverse topics, lectures, debates and panel discussions, film screenings, parties, guest speakers and special events throughout the year--and we have a lively Facebook page where we share all the great stuff we've got going on!
DAF has recently welcomed Governor Howard Dean, Senators Tim Kaine and Kirstin Gillibrand, Representatives Carolyn Maloney and Dina Titus, businesswoman Christie Hefner, and political journalist Richard Reeves, and thanks to the magic of the internet, we have had live video dialogues with Senators Al Franken, Corey Booker, and Elizabeth Warren.
DAF is composed of 8 vibrant chapters in Paris, Toulouse, Marseille, Bordeaux, Strasbourg, the Riviera, Normandy, and the Rhone Alps, each with their own distinctive flavor and feel. Whether it's Political Wine in Nice, a Speakeasy in Grenoble, a Stammtisch in Strasbourg or Bar Night in Bordeaux, there's something going on every month in our our chapters! Our Womens' Caucus, Minority Caucus, and LGBT Caucus, our chapter of Young Democrats Abroad, and our Environmental and Energy Policy Interest Group likewise sponsor a variety of events throughout the year, ranging from public lectures to the Gay Pride Picnic. There's plenty of opportunity to meet fellow Democrats and talk politics!
We are always excited to welcome new members and to help you vote from abroad, so whether you are new to France or having been living here for a while, please join with us to elect Democrats back home. When Americans abroad vote, Democrats win, and when Democrats win, we all prosper.
If you have questions or would like to volunteer with DAF please contact us.
