Welcome to Democrats Abroad Austria!
DAAT is the official arm of the Democratic Party for U.S. citizens living in Austria and part of a global network that assists Americans living abroad to register and vote. We are an entirely voluntary organization and welcome your expertise and participation!
Through a range of activities and events throughout the year, we work hard to represent and connect our diverse and active membership. Our participation in the Women’s and Science Marches and, in particular, our monthly grassroots Solidarity Sundays meet-ups have helped us build and expand a welcoming community of compatriots. The DAATalks guest speaker series aims to provide a tri-annual platform for interesting discussions on topical events. DAAT recently hosted Melissa Fleming, UNHCR Communications Director and author of the best-selling book, A Hope more Powerful than the Sea and NYTimes best-selling author, Timothy Snyder, who spoke to us about his most recent book, On Tyranny. Finally, social events, such as our monthly Young Dems Pub Nights, annual Thanksgiving Dinner, Fourth of July party, participation in Pride Parade, and FUNdraising concerts and events guarantee that we also have a good dose of fun.
Democrats Abroad supports all Americans abroad in registering to vote and casting their ballots from overseas. These get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts are at the heart of our political activity, and we rely on volunteers to ensure our members and friends are enfranchised every election, every year. Our absentee votes have been decisive in numerous elections across the U.S.! Together with other DA country committees from around the globe, we're making the specific issues, which are faced by overseas Americans, known on Capitol Hill.
If you're not yet a member, you can join in just two minutes - under the Join tab above. You’ll receive our monthly newsletter with current issues and actions, events, and reviews. We also encourage you to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
We look forward to meeting you at a DAAT event soon!
