"Now is when the real work begins. the hard work. The necessary work. the good work."
Vice President-Elect, Kamala Harris
On November 7th, 2020, Kamala Harris, the newly elected Vice President of the United States, stepped up on stage and began her acceptance speech by stating, “...that America’s democracy is not guaranteed. It is only as strong as our willingness to fight for it, to guard it, and never take it for granted.”
For the first time in many people’s lifetime, this election has displayed that action makes change — that voices, when united, are loud. Therefore, the Global Women’s Caucus of Democrats Abroad is accepting the torch that Vice President Kamala Harris has delivered to the people, and we are extending the responsibility of action to you.
Join us on January 23rd at 10 am EST (US and Canada) for a celebration of the newly inaugurated Biden-Harris administration, as we share our plans for the coming year and present the many and varied opportunities for volunteering that the Global Women’s Caucus offers world-wide. Each of our Global Action Teams will give a short presentation on plans going forward and suggest ways that members can help out.
We will then move to smaller break out sessions where our leaders will answer your questions, explain how members can establish local women’s caucus groups, and hear your own creative ideas for new ways our caucus might support our members and do the good work.
Now that we are putting four long years of backward movement behind us, we are looking forward to the opportunity to address the many issues still facing women in the United States and to advance an agenda which will benefit all. To do that we need to refine our goals and develop plans which will be informed, realistic and action-oriented, and we need your help.
We know you want to continue to be a part of the change that delivered Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House. The real change will happen as the Biden-Harris administration begins, working with Nancy Pelosi and, we hope, a more productive Senate, to push their legislation in Congress. The Global Women’s Caucus will be focused on making sure women remain central to American domestic and foreign policy, however we need volunteers to make that happen. We are a global network of action driven individuals, working together from all over the world. We need you to help build our movement stronger. We need you for the vital fight that is ahead.
Please RSVP below and join us for a fun and productive session!WHENJanuary 23, 2021 at 10amWHEREZoom

Over 9 million Americans live outside of the United States. Democrats Abroad is working to ensure that as many as possible vote in November, and that Democrats win up and down the ballot.
We are phoning members, running social media ads, and mailing potential voters in order to win in November.
And our Get Out the Vote campaigns work. In 2016, the number of Americans abroad who voted was 50% higher than in 2012 and in 2018, the number of voters tripled compared to 2014.
We CAN make the difference, but we need YOUR help. Please make a donation today to fund our Global Get Out the Vote campaign.
Donations are to Democrats Abroad (Democratic Party Committee Abroad) and not to any candidate for Federal Office.
