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.
