Canada Country Chair / Chair, Quebec / DPCA Voting Representative

A native New Yorker (downstate) I have lived in Montreal, Quebec, Canada for 33 years. Trained as a social worker, I have a passion for providing services to those in need and so I have prioritized GOTV as my primary DA mission. We have hundreds of thousands of Americans here in Canada who NEED to vote in US elections and I want to reach as many of them as possible.

    DA Quebec (formerly DA Montreal) is a chapter of  Democrats Abroad Canada, the official country committee for U.S. Democrats living in Canada.   We are helping US citizens living in Quebec register to vote for US elections and keeping them informed on important issues.  We have a diverse community of enthusiastic voters, members, and volunteers all over the province, from Montreal to Quebec City.   And we're always looking for more. If you're interested in getting involved and putting your skills to good use, reach out to us. We're always looking for dedicated volunteers.

     It is critical we collectively do all that is possible to encourage the estimated 650k - 1m Americans in Canada to vote! Hundreds of American citizen volunteers across Canada are working to educate all eligible U.S. voters on their right to vote and how to get their ballots to vote in every election. That includes Canadians who were born in the U.S. and those born in Canada to an American parent(s), who therefore have the right to vote. Americans living in Canada CAN deliver the difference in close elections. To volunteer, email Randi Weitzner, Chapter Chair.

    Go to VoteFromAbroad.org today to register for your ballot.

    The Quebec Chapter posts events and news items on this page and on our Facebook page.  Please scroll down to the bottom of the page to see what is happening and RSVP for events that are of interest to you. 

    Democratically yours,

    Make "Good Trouble"

    and Save Our Democracy!

    A fundraiser in celebration of the life and work of the late Georgia Congressman and Civil Rights leader, John R. Lewis.

    Democrats Abroad is commemorating Congressman John Lewis with two online screenings of the documentary "John Lewis - Get in the Way" on July 11, various actions days after Congress resumes legislative business, and a Forum on July 17, the one-year anniversary of his passing.

    Often described as the conscience of the Congress, John Lewis was a friend to Democrats Abroad. To raise funds for DA’s GOTV efforts, we ask everyone—whether you attend or not—to donate $19.65—or for those who wish to be a Gold Star Supporter, $80 representing the 80 years of John Lewis’ extraordinary, courageous life.

    Please join Democrats Abroad to honor the memory of John Lewis and carry forward the flame of his dedication to voting rights for all.

     

    Donations are made to Democrats Abroad and not to any candidate or candidate's committee.  Donations to Democrats Abroad (Democratic Party Committee Abroad) can only be made by American citizens and lawful Permanent Residents.  Donations to Democrats Abroad are not tax-deductible for Federal income tax purposes.

    $820.00 raised
    GOAL: $1,000.00

    Fundraiser for Voter Protection in Georgia and all over the United States

    Georgia's state law, as well as other state bills designed to suppress the vote make passing the federal bill S1 - the "For the People Act" - a crucial next step!

    DA will be rolling out an action campaign for all members and committees to ACT on to push our senators to pass this fundamental bill. That action will include support for an amendment to the bill further supporting Americans abroad voting rights.
