Always wanted to get involved politically but not sure where to start? Democrats Abroad is a global organization with groups all around the world representing and organizing Americans. Learn how you can have an impact!

  • Review the wide variety of volunteer roles available and their commitments in terms of time and responsibility,
  • Clarify and demystify how any member can run for office within Democrats Abroad.

There will be three online sessions, each 1.5 hours, held at a time that is convenient for each region:

Each session will showcase four different Democrats Abroad Leaders, one for each of the Global, Regional, and Country levels, and one from a country without a Country Chapter from the region, interspersed with breakout rooms where you can engage in speed networking and discussions.
