Welcome to Democrats Abroad Japan, your local voice in the US Democratic Party. We build communities of like-minded American citizens throughout Japan to engage voters in US elections. We are an all-volunteer organization composed of an Executive Committee, Communications, Get Out The Vote, Events, and Fundraising committees, and regional chapters.
We would love to have you support our programs! What interests you most? Social events? Getting people to vote? Writing? Sharing your knowledge or experience? Getting DAJ connected to other people in your area? Whatever your interest or skills, DAJ needs you! (you can always email us at [email protected])
Please join us on Slack – an online work-sharing platform, where our leaders and teams do the planning.
DA Japan publishes a bimonthly email newsletter, with information on all our events and election news. We also run 2 monthly events:
DaJ Speakeasy, an online social gathering on the 2nd Thursday of each month, and the
DAJ Action Meeting, a monthly workshop on a specific pressing issue, on the 4th Thursday. We explore how you can make a difference.
DAJapan will resume in-person events as COVID restrictions relax in Japan. In the past, we have organized and participated in social and political action events, such as the annual summer BBQ at the US embassy, the Women's March, and the Black Lives Matter Tokyo march. Our chapters host local events throughout Japan, including book clubs, happy hours and Fourth of July parties. Our local Thanksgiving events in particular are very popular.
We maintain a calendar of events, DAJ, and of the larger Democrats Abroad organization. Click on the calendar image to see the latest calendar:
