Tuesday, July 26 --- 12 pm to 1:30 pm --- Loews Philadelphia Hotel
Join the Democrats Abroad Delegation to the Philadelphia Convention and other friends of DA as we celebrate the overseas vote and the 40th Anniversary of our full voting participation in the Democratic National Convention.
1976 was the first year that Democrats Abroad participated as full voting members at the Democratic Convention in New York that nominated President Jimmy Carter who is now our Honorary Chairperson. 1976 also marked the first elections when all overseas Americans had the right to vote -- thanks to the efforts of Democrats Abroad.
The tradition continues in 2016 in the city of brotherly love and sisterly affection -- and around the world as Democrats Abroad works to Get Out the Vote among the estimated six million eligible American voters living in over 190 countries.
Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, the Co-Chair of the Americans Abroad Caucus will address the Luncheon as will other special guests of Democrats Abroad.
Please join us for lunch at 12 Noon on Tuesday, July 26 in Philadelphia. Reserve Tickets (General $60) and sign up as Hosts, Neighbors and Friends for the Luncheon below. Seats are limited, so order early. RSVPs by July 20.
