2016-2020 Democrats Abroad DNC Member

Hejsan from Western Sweden!

During the past 4 years, I worked within Democrats Abroad (DA) as the Global Caucus leader, Global Volunteers leader, as a member of the Global Black Caucus Steering Committee, and am currently on our Affirmative Action Committee and is Sweden’s Black Caucus Chair.

My mission is to be the storyteller for our DA team. At meetings, I make sure to meet as many people as possible and share the story of DA - who we are, and how we can work with their state. I also work to keep DA up-to-date by sharing news from the DNC via the leadership listserv. Other channels I use are our DA wiki and my Facebook page. If you are looking for information that you can't find about the DNC, ask me! I am never deterred and am happy to reach back to the DNC whenever asked. I started an Instagram account to share posts from our Country Committees to the expat community and the Democratic Party. I made a request of every country committee leader on our listserve to submit the email address for their communications team to sign them up directly with the DNC to receive news bulletins.

In 4 years, I have never missed an in-person DNC meeting and attend the Black, Midwestern, Military Veterans & Families and Women’s Caucus/Council meetings and belongs to the Disability, Rural, and Senior Caucuses too. Those meetings are excellent opportunities to share the work we are doing to elect Democrats in every election, relay your stories in an effort to get legislation changed at the State level, for example, that prevents some of us from voting, that requires us to sign up for selective service or prevents us from banking in our adopted countries.

Being a DNC Member for Democrats Abroad has never been about me, but about us. I have helped obtain speakers for country-level and global events, get VoteFromAbroad.org listed on State Party websites, and the work of our Global Black Caucus included in the DNC Black Caucus newsletter. I couldn’t have done any of this without your belief in her and her husband’s support. 

I hope that you and yours will stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Join Mayor Pete Buttigieg Webinar

    Please join us for an online broadcast with Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, the keynote speaker at the Democrats Abroad fundraiser in Berlin.

    This is a great opportunity to come together to show support for Democrats Abroad and to raise funds for our global Get Out the Vote efforts in 2017 and 2018 targeted at the 9 million Americans living overseas.

    Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 8 PM CET (2 PM EDT)

    Mayor Pete Buttigieg with Democrats Abroad DNC members in Atlanta.

    This year, Pete campaigned for Chair of the DNC and made quite an impression with party leaders, DNC members, grassroots activists, and the press. His extensive background at home in the US and abroad as a Rhodes Scholar and a Naval Officer in Afghanistan has earned the respect and appreciation of Democrats Abroad and we're glad to have a chance to host him in Berlin.
