WHY ARE WE CALLING?
Our democracy is at stake this November. Votes from abroad - as mentioned in the Jan. 6th hearings - can hand Democrats much-needed victories to keep Congress, win two more Senate seats and more down ballot races.
We know that calling DA members is one of the most effective ways to mobilize voters.
Take action with us as we 'Dial for Democracy'
WHAT IS D4D?
Dialing 4 Democracy is a 48-hour voter mobilization Call-a-thon. During the weekend of June 25-26, callers will contact Democrats Abroad members who vote in battleground states. Calling will start at 12:01am US Eastern on Saturday, June 25 and continue through 11:59pm US Eastern on Sunday, June 26. TOGETHER, we can reach thousands of voters!
AND/OR FINDING SPONSORS
D4D is also a fundraiser modeled on walk-a-thons, where callers find sponsors from their family, friends and colleagues. All funds raised will support DA's voter mobilization efforts, including the online phonebanking program.
You can make calls with or without sponsors or donate even if you don't make calls!

Join us for our Democrats Abroad "Fourth of July" celebration taking place on Saturday, July 2, from noon to 4 p.m at the Meierei im Prater, directly on the Hauptallee. There will be live music by Rage Against the Voting Machines (so named at last year's event), which includes some DA Austria members. Places are limited so please RSVP as soon as possible! While the party is free, please consider supporting our get-out-the-vote efforts for the mid-terms by making a donation that fits your budget. See you there!
Now more than ever, with states passing "Don't Say Gay" laws, criminalizing parents for helping their trans children, and attacking the rights and lives of the members of our community--not to mention the destruction of the right to privacy via the Supreme Court's attack on Roe v Wade, which will have implications for our community (potential consequences include the decriminalization of homosexuality and the elimination of marriage equality, both predicated on the right to privacy established in Griswold and Roe)--it is time for us to come together, show our pride and our strength as a community, and stand up for our rights. We need to get out the vote of every American--gay and straight, cis and trans, black, brown, white and every color of the rainbow in-between.
That's why DA-Netherlands and the DA Global LGBTQ+ Caucus is inviting you to join us in Amsterdam for CanalPride the weekend of August 5-7.
We have put together an absolutely killer FUN'raiser for the entire weekend !
We have a BOAT IN THE PARADE !!
We have Cocktail Receptions !!
We have Special Guests !!
We have Special Tours, on foot, bike and boat !!
For a richer and more robust description of what to expect and of all the events, please visit THIS SITE.
And most of all, we have the opportunity to show our support in front of a half-million people gathered along the canals of Amsterdam on this amazing day. Surely some of them are going to be American, and they need to know how important it is to vote. And the world press will be there too.
This is an important political manifestation for us, but let's face it, it's also going to be a lot of fun.
There are many ways you can help support us, even if you cannot be there. Take advantage of the Early Bird Special Prices described below. All donations will support Democrats Abroad's efforts to Get Out The Vote and win the elections in November.
Book your tickets NOW!
This is going to sell out, and It's gonna be awesome !
