Christopher Brandon, EMEA & Global Youth Delegate for Bernie Sanders

In order to defeat Donald Trump, we need to unite the Democratic Party. My life experiences as a worker, student, teacher, and a volunteer have provided me with the experience and skills necessary to contribute to this collective effort and elect Joseph Biden. As a former delivery services worker burdened by student debt, I understand everyday people’s struggles. I have also experienced both the benefits and difficulties of living abroad as a Masters student and an English teacher. Sending thousands of texts for the Bernie Sanders campaign has provided me with invaluable insight into the perceptions and preferences of voters from across the political spectrum. Finally, through volunteering as a poll worker at the Skåne region’s Global Presidential Primary and co-hosting chapter events, I have developed outreach and organizational skills which enable me to effectively communicate Bernie Sanders and Democrats Abroad’s values and interests to fellow Democrats and the media.
