China

Democrats Abroad China (DACN or DA China for short) is the country committee serving U.S. Democrats living in China.

We help Americans abroad participate in U.S. domestic politics by providing voter registration support, voting resources, and activism opportunities. Member activities include conversations with leading activists and elected officials, social events and parties, and more

We run several WeChat groups to connect American Democrats with each other in various regions around China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Pearl River Delta and Kunming.

You can also join our Book Club, our Women’s Caucus or our Progressives group.
