Members traveling to Basel who would like to share rides are invited to indicate your city, so that we may link you to others from the same region to coordinate travel.

DACH is made up of all volunteers working together to keep Americans living abroad informed and connected with the political process, and make it easier to vote from abroad. We hope you will support the members who have stepped up, and vote. We invite you to become involved in our activities and political activism. We are expecting a very exciting and busy next term, resisting the Republican administration in 2017 and voting in mid-term elections in 2018. Come help us elect Democrats!
