Happy Asian Pacific American Heritage Month! As we celebrate the Asian and Pacific Islander American experience, it's important to understand the spike in racist attacks and hate crimes people in this community are experiencing. Read more about it, and what to do about it, in Quyen Ngyen’s (Colombia) first-hand account “Racism doesn’t exist here.”

An Asian American/Pacific Islander Caucus is being formed at the DA Global level -- within DA France, caucus members are a part of our Diversity Caucus. Please email Ada Shen at chair@democratsabroad.fr if you are interested in helping with the AAPI global caucus from France. All are welcome.

To find out more about Democrats Abroad Global Caucuses and to join, please see here.

Rapid Response Needed: Destroy the Post Office, and you destroy democracy. We must take action to save the USPS, here, and to learn how to use ResistBot at the same time. “Simply put, if you hate the Post Office then you hate America.... We need to all lean on our members of Congress — regardless of party — to lean on the White House to save our Post Office before September.”

The working draft of the 2020 Democrats Abroad Platform is now available(click here to download and open the PDF file): Draft - 2020 Platform. The platform expresses DA’s political values and policy goals, and is the result of over 10,000 comments submitted over the past six months. Please provide YOUR comment here: Platform Feedback Form. Please respond by May 15, ideally, as electors will vote on the platform during the DA Regional Conventions (May 16) and Global Convention (June 6).
