China

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 don't plan on stopping there!

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.

Voting is a fundamental right for *all* Americans. DACN ensures members are up-to-date with voting information, and enables members to volunteer in many ways that improve voter participation.

    ❗️Notice of Election to fill AP DNC Representative Vacancy❗️

    The following message was posted by the Asia Pacific Regional Vice Chair, Nicholas Gordon. It was posted on April 21, 2022, using Democrats Abroad's Mobilize platform.


    This message serves as a 30-day notice for an Asia-Pacific Regional Meeting to be held on May 21 at 1:00am Eastern, i.e. a few hours before the start of day one of our Global Meeting. 

    The purpose of this meeting will be for Asia-Pacific to elect a new member of the Democratic National Convention after the resignation of current DNC member Aaron Kruse. The winner of the election will serve the remainder of the term, which lasts until 2024.

    The DNC member will be elected by members of the Democratic Party Committee Abroad based in Asia-Pacific—in other words, the Chairs, Vice-Chairs and Voting Representatives from Asia-Pacific Country Committees.

    DNC members need to attend meetings of the DNC—the governing body of the Democratic Party—and build bridges between DA and other Party organizations. They join issue caucuses, attend committee meetings, and help make the needs of Democrats Abroad known within the organization. They will also communicate what happens at the DNC level to Democrats Abroad leaders and members. 

    Candidates will be nominated from the floor and elected by DPCA voters in attendance. However, prospective candidates do not need to be DPCA voters to stand for election. 

    Democrats Abroad’s DNC delegation must be gender balanced. Due to the self-proclaimed gender identity of the currently-serving DNC representatives, only DA members in Asia-Pacific who do not identify as female, i.e. male and nonbinary, are eligible to be elected.

    As nominations will be made from the floor, interested candidates do not need to share their interest before May 21. 

    Democrats Abroad members interested in attending can RSVP here: http://www.democratsabroad.org/nickrigordon/asia-pacific_regional_meeting_-_special_election_for_dnc_member_from_asia-pacific. Asia Pacific Regional Deputy Amerika Grewal will assist me in ensuring that the region’s DPCA voters attend the regional meeting.

Asia Pacific Regional Deputy Amerika Grewal will assist me in ensuring that the region’s DPCA voters attend the regional meeting.

    Further details on election rules, including exactly how someone will be nominated from the floor, the amount of time given to candidates for introductions and questions, and how the voting process will be carried out, will be shared in advance of the meeting on May 21.

     

    Sincerely,

    Nicholas Gordon
