Welcome to Democrats Abroad China! 

Democrats Abroad China is a part of a larger community of hundreds of thousands of Democrats living abroad. Absentee ballots from Americans living abroad turned the tide in 2020 elections and we want to continue to help you vote!

Throughout the year, we get together to make friends and make a difference. DACN activities range from monthly gatherings, to panel discussions, to film screenings. Together we celebrate Juneteenth, Fourth of July, Hispanic Heritage Month and more! We work together and push for change using issue-oriented actions.


In addition to Global DA Groups, DA China members are welcome to volunteer and even lead at the local level! Interested in volunteering? Simply complete a Volunteer Interest Form.

    Happy Holidays from DACN!

    As we say goodbye to 2021, the DACN Leadership Board would like to thank you for voting and for acting on important advocacy issues.

    Rolling into 2022, we are sounding the alarm. Basic rights, including the right to vote, are still under attack by the GOP. We ask that you please join us by registering to vote, sharing our messaging with other Americans, training to volunteer, and donating to DACN. 


    Every action matters and increases the margin of victory.



    Together we can!



    In Solidarity, 

    Eileen Walsh, Anders Hove, Terry Watkins, Brian Kloosterman, Jacob Aldaco, Adam Robbins, Lisa Movius, Adam Bucky, Elizabeth Blackbourn, Tricia Williams, Alex Vanderpol, and Ollie Prats Tipton
