Global Black Caucus



  • Democrats Abroad Global Black Caucus Banner


    Welcome and thank you for visiting the Democrats Abroad
    Global Black Caucus page.

    The Democrats Abroad Global Black Caucus (GBC) is made up of DA members of all ethnicities from around the world who are willing and able to advocate on issues important to Black Americans within the United States of America and those living abroad. All DA members are eligible to join the GBC. We advocate for laws, policies, and programs that improve the lives of Black Americans and educate all people on the humanity of Black people.

    The purpose of the Global Black Caucus is to provide a forum for all DA members to better understand the issues and concerns affecting Black Americans, to help eliminate unconscious bias within the DA membership and in America, to help engage with Black voters living abroad and ensure that their needs are met within the DA community, and, where needed, to advocate for reforms to political issues. We encourage and facilitate Black Americans abroad to engage, become informed, and exercise their voting franchise.

    Mission Statement

    • To support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic
    • To support the goals and ideals of the Democratic Party and Democrats Abroad
    • To encourage voting in every eligible U.S. election by as many Black Americans abroad and Black Caucus members as possible
    • To advocate on issues of concern to Black Americans
    • To be a voice for U.S. citizens living abroad
    • To support campaigns of Democratic candidates aligned with our interests running for elected office in the U.S.
    • To work with other teams within DA to further our joint goals.

    Statement on Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade

    VOTE THEM OUT!

    The Global Black Caucus is heartbroken and devastated by the Supreme Court’s majority decision to overturn nearly 50 years of Roe v. Wade precedent. We are even more steadfast in our mission to enfranchise even more Americans living abroad to take their frustrations, anger, and sadness to the polls this November. 

    The ruling disavows an essential human right … freedom over our bodies for millions of Americans. The consequences will be devastating for Black and Brown women and as indicated in the majority ruling paths the way for an attack on intersectional Americans on every level, from who they love, how they love, and how they family.

    If you are as fired up as I am, tell your family, tell your friends, tell everyone to vote them out this November. We need to hold onto the House and gain more seats in the Senators to ensure our country progresses for all of us.

    We did it in 2020 and we can do it in 2022. Our freedoms are on the ballot. Our safety is on the ballot. Our lives are on the ballot.

    This is you. This is me. This is all of us.

    Love and Light

    🏃🏿‍♀️Race To Saving Our Democracy 🏃🏿‍♂️

    Hold & Expand our Senate seats so that we can get rid of the filibuster, don’t have to rely on Sens Manchin and Sinema, and can finally pass popular measures that a majority of Americans want. This means, at a minimum, defending the toughest seats to hold (GA, AZ, NH, and NV) and flipping the 3 seats where we already hold statewide leadership positions (NC, WI, and PA).

    Hold the House so that we can continue to pass extraordinary measures that help the American People. Every state has vulnerable Dems who need protection to flip seats.

    Win key State leadership roles – ie Keeping Govs in WI, MI, PA, and KS to prevent toxic state legislatures from passing heinous legislation and flipping MD and MA so we can incubate more great policies in the states.

    Give President Biden two more years (at least) to govern with both chambers of Congress so that the seeds he’s planted with ARP, the Infrastructure package and other efforts across government can sprout and bloom and so that he can pass voter protection reform and Build Back Better.
