Welcome to Democrats Abroad Kenya


Democrats Abroad Kenya (Kenya) is the official country committee for U.S. Democrats living in Kenya.  As a group of committed and dedicated American citizens living in Kenya we're working to build and grow a community of volunteers to:

  • Help Americans abroad vote in U.S. elections.
  • Protect the right to vote for Americans abroad.
  • Work with US government officials and elected representatives to advocate for issues that concern Americans abroad
  • Work with the broader Democratic Party to achieve our goals.
  • Build communities of like-minded Americans around the world.
  • Help elect Democrats in every congressional district in the U.S.
  • Advocate for legislation to expand and the voting rights of Americans Abroad
