  • Anya Leonard, DA Global AAPI Caucus Steering Committee Member

    Anya LeonhardHi, I'm Anya! I moved to Leipzig, Germany from New Orleans in 2016 to attend medical school, where I am now in my second to last year. I have been active in Democrats Abroad since 2019 when the Leipzig precinct was founded. Since then, I've been a founding member of both the AAPI Caucus and Democrats Abroad Saxony, as well as a delegate for Bernie Sanders at the 2020 DNC. I believe the AAPI Caucus gives us a valuable space to explore diasporic Asian-American identity outside of the United States, as well as having hard conversations about accountability, solidarity, and activism. I'm excited to be a part of this team and to foster a community amongst our fellow AAPI Dems Abroad.

  • Anya Leonhard - Youth, LGBT, Asian-American delegate candidate for Bernie Sanders

    Sen. Sanders's policies strive for empathy and accessibilty in all forms of government. I think of these values as the best of politics and the best of America -- summarized by his movement of diverse, progressive people. Laws affect us: those that govern who can marry, who can stay in the country, who can afford an education. I organize protests against racial injustice here in Germany, in the wake of devastating white supremacist attacks. I handed out ballots and counted votes at the Global Presidential Primary. I volunteer for reproductive rights. I'm genuinely afraid of the consequences of the last administration, but also hopeful for improvement. My experiences as a lesbian of color and as a medical student in Europe have shown me the incredible importance of Sen. Sanders's campaign -- a campaign I would be honored to represent. https://anyaatthednc.wordpress.com/
