  • Welcome to Guyana - Committee in formation!

    GuyanaMap.jpg

    DA Guyana is a fully formed and operating DA committee of under 150 members, hence, called a "Committee-in Formation" as we build our membership.
    We are located in the north-east of South America, bordering the North Atlantic Ocean.  A former British colony, Guyana is the only English-speaking country in South America.

    Guyana is a continental country with a Caribbean culture. We share a post-colonial history with the English-speaking Caribbean, but we are not a Caribbean Island.

    Guyana is an oil producing nation with over 9 billion barrels of oil reserves; over 3000 Americans and their dependents are working in the Petroleum industry in Guyana.

    DA Peru Intro

    WELCOME TO DEMOCRATS ABROAD PERU!

    Hello,

    Thanks for your interest in Democrats Abroad Peru.

    We are a small but might team made up of local volunteers. This past June we elected a new executive team, led by Chair, Leda Perez. The other members of the committee include Vice Chair Felipe Reinoso, Secretary Monique Loayza, and Treasurer Nadine Freeman.

    Due to the ongoing pandemic we are not holding in person events at this time and we are focusing on keeping you updated with upcoming elections, resources for voting from abroad, and activities being led by DA Global. 

    Some key issues for us this year include the ongoing fight for voting rights. Please continue to check out for info on our newsletter for more information and for ways you can participate. 

    As always, we welcome those who may be interested in participating further with Democrats Abroad. If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, and in particular have some social media skills, we’d love to hear from you!

    Contact us at [email protected] to let us know how you'd like to be involved!

    Thanks all and stay well!
