  • Emily Lines

    DAG Vice Chair Candidate

    Gender: (F)

    As an active member in Democrats Abroad (DA) since Spring 2016, I have held various leadership positions since 2017. This has included Democrats Abroad Germany (DAG) Events & Fundraising Coordinator, DPCA Voting Representative, Vice-Chair of the Berlin Chapter, and Co-Chair of the Global Asian American & Pacific Islander Caucus. These past four years have been very busy (and sometimes exhausting), but an exciting time for DA and I have enjoyed seeing how much this organization has grown and what kind of impact we have been able to make.

    I am running for Vice-Chair of DAG because I want to strengthen our volunteer base and grassroots organizing efforts so that we can hit the ground running in 2022 for the midterms. DAG has been able to establish a number of teams and volunteer opportunities over the past two years and during the next two years, I want to continue this work. During my time as Vice-Chair for the Berlin Chapter, I have seen how impactful organizing at the neighborhood level was, as well as providing more volunteers the opportunity to be active contributors to DA. I plan on working to empower and engage more of our members so that DAG can keep expanding like it did in 2020 with the establishment of two new chapters.

    Being an active member of DA at the global, national, and chapter levels has been a very fulfilling experience. I have truly enjoyed working with all of the volunteers I have met over the years. It has helped me not feel helpless during these last four years and all of our hard work in 2020 clearly paid off. I hope to continue to help build our DA community and give more people the chance to make a difference from abroad.

  • Quaide Williams

    DAG DPCA Voting Representative Candidate

    Gender: (M)

    I started working with DA as part of Americans Overseas for Kerry in Munich in 2004, and after working on the Obama campaign in Germany, I was elected Munich Chapter Chair in 2009. As chair I organized the first annual Oktoberfest FUNdraiser, and before the 2010 midterms, I coordinated the production of our first professional DA brochure, as well as a postal mailing to all DAG members.

    From 2011 to 2017, I served as either DAG Chair or Vice Chair. In my first year as DAG Vice Chair, I founded the EMEA COOP, a cooperative to provide country committees and Germany's chapters with high-quality postcards, brochures, buttons, t-shirts, etc – a project which still exists to this day... in my cellar! Visit our GermanyShop today! I also founded the Global Design Team two years ago and remain one of its co-chairs.

    I was instrumental in planning – and driving – the Democrats Abroad Road Trip (DART) around Europe in the summer of 2012, visiting 26 cities in 13 different countries, motivating local committees and chapters and registering as many American citizens as we could find.

    Having served as one of your DPCA Voting Reps, I’ve tried to represent our country committee well to the global body. It took three years to pass, but I was the driving force behind “one-person-one-vote” – the reason DAG has so many voting reps today.

    I’ve attended Global Meetings in Florence, Seoul, Washington, Puerto Vallarta, London, Punta Cana, Berlin and Tokyo and EMEA Regional Meetings in Berlin, Strasbourg, Edinburgh and Kiev. I know the DPCA, have a good rapport with our DNC members and other leaders worldwide. Should you elect me to this position again, I promise to continue working hard for you. I ask for your support – and your vote.

  • Shari Temple

    DAG DPCA Voting Representative Candidate

    Gender: (F)

    I would be honored to serve another term as a DPCA Voting Representative (VR) representing Democrats Abroad Germany (DAG).   

    I have been an active member of DAG since 2005 servicing in various positions – Munich Chapter Chair, DAG Secretary, DAG Vice-Chair, DAG Chair, and DAG Voting Representative.   At the DA International level, I have served on the Executive Committee as EMEA Regional Vice Chair (RVC).   I have been a chair and member of many global committees over the years and currently the IT Chair and the head of the Equal Rights Amendment Task Force.

    For those that know me, I hope you have seen that I am willing to spend the time and energy for the organization from grunt work to high level presentations.   My ability to listen to both sides of an argument and look for win-win solutions are a valuable skill for the VR role.  I am a team player willing to share knowledge and work with the rest of the VR members and our DAG Executive Committee.

    The reason I am running for VR is to share my knowledge and experience within DA to help make our organization better and more effective.   Based on my various roles at all levels, I understand the inter-workings of the organization and how to effect change.

    I would appreciate your vote for one of the DAG DPCA Voting Representative positions.

    DAG Membership/IT Coordinator Candidate

    I have accepted the nomination for the position of DAG IT/Membership Coordinator. As the Global IT Chair, I know the Nation Builder system, DA’s membership management system, inside and out. In the past, I have helped those with this role when there was an overload of work. It was also part of the DAG Secretary role when I held that position. I definitely have the skills and knowledge to perform the duties of the DAG IT/Membership Coordinator. And I am willing to invest the time to perform those duties.

    Charles Baranski - Bernie Sanders Delegate Candidate from Canada

    I'm Charlie Baranski, and I'm very proud to be running for Bernie delegate. As the president of Democrats Abroad McGill, I have intimately learned how to advocate for students and youth abroad, and I am currently running for office in the states, giving me experience in uniting the party and focusing on the progressive solutions we all need. Pushing our platform and party to be more progressive is how we bring in new voters, and we all know as Democrats Abroad the benefits of policies like universal healthcare. When you send me to (digital) Milwaukee, I look forward to voting for Bernie on every ballot and pushing for the progressive policies we need, know, and love.
