Who We Are

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 55 country 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. Our members live in more than 190 countries around the globe and vote in every state and Congressional district in the U.S.

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.

Our online voter registration tool - votefromabroad.org - makes it easy to request a ballot and vote absentee from any place on the planet.

    Watch the Film Legalize Equality

    The Equal Rights Amendment resolution passed unanimously in Tokyo where we committed to do whatever we can to help get the ERA ratified.  See the resolution here.

    Watch the video "Legalize Equality."  This 30-minute video gives an excellent overview of the Equal Rights Amendment and why it is critical to be ratified.  

    You can watch the video until 31 December 2020 or the ERA passes.

    To receive the streaming link and password, click RSVP and you will receive an email with the information in it.

    Feel free to share the link and password to DA members that want to view it.  However, please do NOT post the link and password on the internet in any way.  Only Democrats Abroad has access for this private screening and we need to honor this special access given by Equal Means Equal and Heroica Films.

    Reproductive Rights are Human Rights

    Reproductive Rights are Human Rights

    A Democrats Abroad Global Women’s Caucus Event Toolkit

    January is Women’s Rights Month! The fourth Women’s March will take place on January 18th, 2020. This year’s theme will be “March for our Human Rights.” GWC can think of no more fundamental human right than to have sovereignty over one’s own body. 
    We encourage members to participate in marches that will take place around the world and/or plan group meetings around the theme of reproductive rights throughout the month of January and beyond! 

    To help organize your own events, we have put together a  GWC Reproductive Rights Event Toolkit.  All members are invited to choose elements from this collection of activity and event ideas to build their own unique events around our theme.

    We are also grateful to NARAL/Pro-Choice America for making their great materials available to us!

    All you have to do is click, get inspired and organize!

    For help, more suggestions and to share your event info and photos, please contact us at: womenscaucus@democratsabroad.org
