WHAT WE STAND FOR

The recognition of U.S citizens living outside our country as a constituency group with unique and pressing concerns is inadequate. Democrats Abroad fights for a fair representation of the most long standing issues.

Taxation Issues

The Democrats Abroad Taxation Task Force (TTF) consists of volunteers researching U.S. tax policy as it affects Americans living outside the U.S. and considering, developing, and executing initiatives aimed at enacting reforms that resolve adverse impacts.

Voting Rights

Our State Teams work to monitor state and federal level voting rights legislation, and advocate to increase ballot access for all Americans - abroad and at home.

Medicare Portability

Once citizens begin receiving the Social Security they earned throughout their work lives, their benefit is automatically reduced for the cost of their Medicare. But US Citizens residing outside the country are unable to use the Medicare they paid for, and continue to pay for, without often-costly travel back to the United States.

Equal Rights Amendment

The Equal Rights Amendment Task Force works to promote the addition of equal rights in the US Constitution and all state constitutions.   This includes research, advocacy, education and communication.

Climate Emergency

Democrats Abroad advocates for urgent action to address the existential crisis of climate change. Americans living overseas bear direct witness and suffer the consequences of the global climate emergency; from the melting Arctic ice caps to the sinking islands of the Pacific to the pervasive and increasing fires and floods devastating the earth.
