Europe, Middle East & Africa

Welcome to the Europe, Middle East, and Africa Region!

Who We Are 

Democrats Abroad is the official arm of the Democratic Party representing Americans who live outside the US. Our mission is to provide Americans living abroad a voice in our government and to elect Democrats by mobilizing the overseas vote.

Where We Are

The EMEA region has active committees in 26 countries and members in dozens of other countries. You can benefit from all Democrats Abroad has to offer regardless of where you live!

Our Activities

Our organisation is 100% volunteer-run and membership is free! Organisers in your area would love to get in touch with you to connect you to other members, share our local and global (online) events, and help you vote from abroadDo you want to get more involved? There are so many ways to make a difference—from individual tiny actions, to get out the vote drives, to social events—the EMEA regional team is here to help. We're always looking for more volunteers. Why not you? Contact us at [email protected]

    Global Disability Caucus Edition - Connect the Dots

    Global Disability Caucus Edition of Connect the Dots

    We’d like you to join us for our first member event on October 30th at 9 am Eastern Time.  At our Global Disability Caucus Edition of Connect the Dots, we’ll share information on how and why we were launched and the mission and objectives as we’ve described them to date.  We’ll also do a brief update and then break up into groups so that you can talk with a member of the founding committee to ask questions, share ideas and explore ways to become involved.

    “The Future is Accessible!”  Please RSVP below and join us on the 30th!

    We have a number of events in the works and, of course, lots of work to do.  We also look forward to building a wonderful community of supportive, committed and creative people with disabilities and allies dedicated to furthering our shared goals.

    While there is no donation required to attend, we hope you’ll consider a donation of $10 to support our work to elect Democrats who will fight to make a better life for ALL Americans. Please click here to donate!
