    Beginners are welcome - this is a great opportunity to start volunteering!

    GOTV: We’ll cover everything you need to know about  sending absentee ballots from abroad, so you can reach out to your own community and help get out the vote!

    Make "Good Trouble"

    and Save Our Democracy!

    A fundraiser in celebration of the life and work of the late Georgia Congressman and Civil Rights leader, John R. Lewis.


    Democrats Abroad is commemorating Congressman John Lewis with two online screenings of the documentary "John Lewis - Get in the Way" on July 11, various actions days after Congress resumes legislative business, and a Forum on July 17, the one-year anniversary of his passing.

    Often described as the conscience of the Congress, John Lewis was a friend to Democrats Abroad. To raise funds for DA’s GOTV efforts, we ask everyone—whether you attend or not—to donate $19.65—or for those who wish to be a Gold Star Supporter, $80 representing the 80 years of John Lewis’ extraordinary, courageous life.

    Please join Democrats Abroad to honor the memory of John Lewis and carry forward the flame of his dedication to voting rights for all.


    Donations are made to Democrats Abroad and not to any candidate or candidate's committee.  Donations to Democrats Abroad (Democratic Party Committee Abroad) can only be made by American citizens and lawful Permanent Residents.  Donations to Democrats Abroad are not tax-deductible for Federal income tax purposes.

    Fundraiser for Legislative Advocacy

    Help Reinstate New Jersey Law for Overseas Voters to Vote in State Elections

    🚨 Attention New Jersey Voters 🚨

    DONATE NOW to help us reach and mobilize New Jersey Democrats Abroad!

    New Jersey currently does not allow all overseas voters to vote in state elections, even though overseas voters could vote in state elections before Chris Christie pushed through a change in the law in 2017.

    Assemblywoman Joann Downey has introduced a bill, NJ A5306, to change the law back--and with your donation you can help get it passed!

    If you're from New Jersey, you can also directly help pass the bill for this campaign as a constituent. Contact Speaker Coughlin at 1-732-855-7441 and urge his staffers to put NJ A5306 on the schedule, which restores voting rights for NJ Overseas Voters. You can find a call script here!

    [Mobile device users, please scroll down to donate!]

    Your generosity makes sure we can keep working to make legislative change and help get out the vote for states that have elections this year!
