Congresswoman Dina Titus on the Commission on Americans Living Abroad Act


Join Democrats Abroad as we welcome Congresswoman Dina Titus (D, NV-01), Chair of the Congressional Americans Abroad Caucus and sponsor of the Commission on Americans Living Abroad Act of 2023 (H.R. 2729). The event will take place virtually on Friday, May 5 at 12:00pm US Eastern.

If enacted, H.R. 2729 would establish a commission to study how federal laws and policies—including those on taxation, banking, voting, Medicare, Social Security, and citizenship—affect U.S. citizens abroad. Congresswoman Titus and Democrats Abroad know that these topics are impacting the day-to-day lives of many U.S. and dual citizens around the world and are committed to finding solutions with your help. 

We hope you'll join us for this event, and also take a moment to write to your U.S. congressperson and urge them to support H.R. 2729.

There is a suggested donation of $23 for this event!

During the course of her political career, Dina has focused on protecting those most vulnerable – children, seniors, and the disabled. A teacher herself, she has always made quality education for all a priority and has been a strong advocate for the arts. Dina has worked tirelessly on issues to protect our environment and its creatures, push renewable energy development, and create more sustainable communities. 

Dina has received numerous awards from various organizations, but one of her proudest moments came in 2006 with the dedication of the Dina Titus Estates, an innovative affordable housing complex for persons with disabilities, in recognition of Dina's tireless advocacy.

Candice Kerestan, DA International Chair & DNC Youth Council Vice Chair (Munich, Germany)

A Central Pennsylvania native, Candice Kerestan has lived in Germany for the past decade and currently serves as International Chair of Democrats Abroad (DA), the official arm of the Democratic Party responsible for engaging and mobilizing the more than nine million U.S. citizens living overseas. Candice previously served as Chair of DA Germany and as the Regional Leader for the Cologne-Bonn Chapter in Germany.

In her role as International Chair, Candice works with on-the-ground organizers in nearly every country to find new voters and activate existing voters abroad—with the overarching goal of delivering even more votes for Democrats across the United States in 2023 and 2024. She firmly believes that overseas voters not only make a difference in races all around the United States, but have important perspectives that are worth sharing stateside.

As one of only three 30-and-under Democratic state chairs nationwide, Candice also knows the importance of engaging, mobilizing, and elevating younger voters firsthand. Through her elected position as Vice Chair of the Democratic Committee's Youth Council and involvement with the Young Democrats of America, Candice works to make sure every student and young professional headed abroad can and does make their voice heard.
