    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.

    Ayden Pierce Maher, Sanders Delegate (Americas)

    Hi everyone! I am a 30-year-old Floridian in London. I am running as a Sanders delegate to ensure the progress we made at the last convention and the vision of Senator Sanders live on in a bold, progressive democratic platform. My political activism started in 2004 when I volunteered over 500 hours for the Kerry Edwards campaign - my mom even let me miss school the week before the election so I could knock on more doors! After finishing college in 2012 I worked as a democratic legislative assistant in the FL House of Reps. before running a campaign for the first openly LGBTQA state rep. I had the privilege of voting for Bernie in 2016 with dems abroad and have always continued my involvement with the democratic party back home. I would be honoured to represent Dems abroad at the convention. (pictured: 2012 campaign photo)

    Sam Khunaizi - Delegate Candidate for Bernie Sanders

    I am currently serving as DA-UAE Secretary & served as Voting Center Manager in the 2020 GPP. As an extension to my service, and with great honor and humility, I am running for a Bernie Sanders pledged Delegate. I believe this historic 2020 Democratic National convention should serve as the foundation of restoring American values & beliefs and uniting all Americans by bringing competent leadership to the White House. I have been supporting Sen. Sanders since he first ran in 2016. Sen. Sanders is a candidate of deep integrity and ingenuity who has tremendously influenced the Democratic Party progressive agenda. Sen. Sander’s progressive message has resonated among millions of voters all over the Country. It would be my profound privilege to represent Sen. Sanders & his voters as a delegate in the Democratic National Convention. I hope to gain your support to be your Sen. Sanders’s representative & delegate.

    Jennifer Shore - Delegate candidate for Biden (EMEA)

    This is one of the most important presidential elections of my lifetime. Now is the time for Democrats to unite with the common goal of getting our current president out of the White House. I would like to do whatever I can to elect Joe Biden. I want to make sure that everyone knows that he is the leader Americans need right now. This was very much the case before the global pandemic of Covid19, but it is even more clearly the case now. We need a leader that can show compassion, gravitas and restore honor to the office of the presidency. We need a leader that commands repect on the global stage, that knows how to do his job from day one and will unite Americans. We need Joe Biden. I would be honored to assist in the effort to get the democratic nominee elected and to energize other voters abroad to participate and elect the right man for the moment. I moved from NYC to Geneva, Switzerland with my husband and 2 boys in 2009. I have worked in the public and private sector and am a lifelong democrat.

    David Wagner - Delegate Candidate for Bernie Sanders (Asia-Pacific)

    We need more than just a new president... we need a revolution! I am proud to join the fight for a fair and free America. We always knew it was possible, but it was the senator from Vermont who showed us how to get there. Almost all the obstacles standing in the way of our freedom can be traced to one problem: corporate influence over our elections. Let's put the health of our planet above the profits of corporations. Let's put an end to private prisons. Let's tell the insurance companies that the health of our citizens is more important than their bottom line! Let start treating every American like a human being. Senator Sanders taught us how to achieve all this, and I am looking forward to representing him at the convention.

    Why is this so late? I am a teacher and union leader and my students, their families, and my educators have needed me! In my union capacity, I lobby Congress at least four times per year, In person. I have lobbied on education related issues like racial and social justice, gun reform, school funding, fair pay, child nutrition, and mounting college debts. have dedicated much of my time and money to support anti-voter suppression campaigns and getting out the vote from 1st time voters. I will represent you and staunchly support the DA platform. I am a staunch advocate for military families, veterans, and women but continue to learn and push an anti-racist agenda. My photo, a hedgehog, represents cute and cuddly until you get in my way, then the spikes come out! I don’t shy away from a fight! Anita Lang

    Joy Wiersum, Delegate Candidate for Joe Biden

    I am a Wisconsinite, the daughter of lifelong union members. I am a global citizen, a ten-year resident of the UK with a passion for exploring the world. Although my adult life has been shaped by internationalism, my values are American and rooted in progressive, Democratic principles. As a leadership and strategy consultant, I offer strong communication, influencing and advocacy skills. I am proven in my ability to collaborate with diverse stakeholder groups. I convey complex, and at times contentious, information in a forthright, authentic manner. As an American abroad, I apply these skills daily in my personal life, often explaining American politics, policies and people to those I meet. As a delegate, I will leverage tirelessly my networks in Wisconsin and globally to get out the vote. It would be an honour to support the nomination of and to campaign on behalf of our next President, Joe Biden.

    I have been an educator for much of my adult life as I believe the future of our world depends on the education of our most precious asset, our young people. Faced with the threat of Trump undermining our democracy and the world order that the US helped to build, political engagement has become equally imperative. Primarily for the future of our children, I became more actively involved with Democrats Abroad, Strasbourg, where I have had the honor to serve first as Vice-Chair and, since March 2017, as Chair, supported by a wonderful team that has helped throughout these challenging times to keep our chapter active and growing, We have to win this election. Joe Biden has the qualities needed to heal the country and restore our democracy. I hope that you will give me the opportunity to support his campaign and a Democratic victory with your vote on

    I’m John-Thor Dahlburg, an active ExCom member of the Toulouse Chapter of DA France. I’m a writer, educator and journalist—and Ied the editorial team that won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. My only goal: Democratic victory in 2020. We need to end the inept, corrupt Trump presidency. Trump’s lethal mishandling of COVID-19 emergency dramatically illustrates what’s at stake for our nation. With a win for Joe Biden in November, we have the opportunity to hit the reset button on critical economic, environmental and health care issues. I pledge my all to elect Joe and down-ticket Democrats whose No.1 priority is the health, safety and prosperity of all Americans. For Democrats, it’s also time to unite and renew old bonds with America’s working class, African-Americans, Hispanics, the LGBT community and women. We also need to revive and strengthen ties with our friends and allies abroad.

    Amy Stebbins - Youth Delegate Candidate for Bernie Sanders (EMEA)

    As a delegate for Senator Sanders, I promise to stand up and speak loudly for the progressive policies so many Democrats Abroad voted in favor of, while working together with other delegates to achieve a unity platform that will help our candidate beat Trump in November. I grew up in an Evangelical, Republican household in New Hampshire, where I had to learn how to respectfully engage with people whose opinions differed from mine from early on. Those of us living abroad have a great opportunity to see firsthand how other countries serve their citizens, whether we're talking about healthcare, protection from gun violence, higher education, or even just basic accountability. This knowledge arms us with evidence to show our fellow citizens how politics CAN be, if we as citizens demand it. Political Experience: co-founder of Frankfurt4Bernie, an organization that trained volunteers and hosted phone-banking events (2018-2019); Sanders campaign volunteer (2015-2016).

    Kathryn / Katie Solon, DNC Member Candidate - EMEA and Global

    Overseas voters have unique perspectives and election-winning votes to bring to the Democratic Party. Electing Democrats at every level is critical to turning our Platform planks into U.S. government policy. I’m running to be a Democrats Abroad DNC Member because I’m committed to protecting and expanding our overseas vote, have extensive knowledge of DA and would be an effective and persistent advocate. From the grassroots to global -- as co-founder of DA Austria, International Treasurer, International Chair, and now DA Germany Phonebanking Coordinator-- I’ve been a change agent and Party-builder for 16+ years. At the DNC, I would raise awareness of DA accomplishments, issues and potential and push for continued Party reform. I’d elicit input and report back. I’m asking for your vote, not to reward past work, rather as trust in my continued dedication to protecting and expanding our overseas vote, voice and state Party. KatieforDNC.com

    Antar Rashiq Keith, M.A. - DNC Candidate (EMEA)

    As a Bronx, NY-born working-class African-American Muslim and educator of 10 years, with work experience stretching across Germany, I enjoy fostering stronger transnational ties between US and German youth, working professionals, and active NATO military for the German Department of Defense. My job is to create a bridge between cultures, and this is exactly what I intend to do for working-class and middle-class voters in Democrats Abroad. My experience in political organizing for DA has taught me what it takes to reach across the aisle of institutional and intra-political partisanship. As an activist in German academia, for instance, I currently lobby with student groups in order to create anti-racism and anti-xenophobia policies which will help ethnically-diverse students. I would now very much appreciate the opportunity to further the aims of the Democratic Party in its fight against the triple evils of voter suppression, police brutality, and mass-incarceration.

    I found a home the first time I attended a Global meeting in 2005. I have worked diligently for DA since then. I have served on the ExCom in Norway and am on the Steering Committee of the Global Black Caucus and Womens Caucus. We all know how critical this election is, our very democracy depends on a Democratic outcome. It is critical we focus on what is truly important for our democracy to survive and thrive. Our Democrats Abroad platform is the blueprint for that focus and for our common goals. We Americans abroad are increasingly enduring unintended but serious adverse impacts from US legislation that does not consider our unique circumstances. We need to be heard; our value and votes need to be highlighted. And our general membership needs to be informed and updated on what transpires at DNC meetings. I will continually advocate for these principles.

    As a child of immigrants, a mental health advocate, an educator, and an entrepreneur, I am accustomed to forming coalitions between groups of people. Not just through empathy, but taking that empathy and transforming it into fundraising, communications, and action. Growing up in Richmond, Virginia, I want to share the stories and importance of inclusion — Medicare-for-All, improved access to education, environmental action — as a representative for Sanders’ progressive platform. In Beijing, I’ve taught university courses focusing on educating young people about the urgency of civic engagement. Adapting to healthcare loss and increased hate crimes during COVID-19, I’ve experienced firsthand how domestic/foreign policy can impact citizens abroad and . I believe I have the skills and perspectives to represent Democrats Abroad at the National Convention. I want to represent DemsAbroad, youth voters, and Asian Americans by having a seat at the table as we support our 2020 nominee. https://medium.com/@helen.li2019/my-story-why-i-care-and-why-i-am-running-to-represent-democrats-abroad-1abe187456b2

    Caitlin Kingston, delegate candidate for Bernie Sanders

    I've been a diehard Sanders supporter since #filibernie, so I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to support his platform. I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. My mother is from New York City, and I come from a long line of Democrats. I've worked with the NDP on Olivia Chow, Rosario Marchese, and Andrew Cash's campaigns. I'm passionate about harm reduction, drug policy, disability rights, and prison reform. As a person on the autism spectrum, I have long advocated for the destigmatization of people marginalized by psychiatric and neurological diagnoses. I work on a number of committees and projects dedicated to harm reduction and youth mental health, including the CAMH Youth Advisory Group, Drug Education Resource Committee, and Eli's Place and Surrey Place boards. I also walk and train dogs, and so have an interest in animal welfare.
