Subject: Please vote YES on FATCA repeal resolution this Sunday and forward this email to all my DPCA reps
 
Dear DA Leaders,
 
My name is [your name] and I am writing to you to ask that you vote yes on Sunday for the FATCA repeal resolution.
 
Americans abroad have suffered severe material harm from FATCA for over a decade, in the most extreme circumstances divorce from a non-US spouse and suicide. As a Democrat living abroad, I want to see Democrats Abroad as an organization standing up for Americans abroad and to recognize the problems that FATCA has caused.
 
[Insert personal story where you were impacted by FATCA (bank closures or denial of banking in the country that you live in.]
 
If you have any questions about the resolution in advance of the vote, please contact the authors of the resolution Rebecca Lammers and Nick Lee.
 
Thanks,
[Your Name]

Thank you so much for taking the time to help with this. Your voice matters and this is one small step of many to prevent further harm and unintended consequences for Americans abroad.
