EMEA Non CC Countries



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.

Please get in touch with the EMEA Regional Vice Chair Jen Rakow-Stepper if you would like to help us develop a presence in your area. 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.

    Can you help Democrats Abroad in 2022?

    As we gear up for the 2022 midterm elections, we are looking for people to build our teams in countries that do not have a Democrats Abroad Country Committee. 

    We want to make sure ALL our volunteers and members are engaged in 2022! Your responses to the quick 10 minute survey in the link below will help us to better serve our outreach efforts in your region. Whether you can contribute a lot of time or just a little, you can make a difference in the upcoming midterm elections from wherever in the world you live.

    Let me know you'll join the effort by filling out the survey. I hope to hear from you soon!


    Best regards,

    Jen Rakow-Stepper

    Take Back the Court! Chelsey Davidson speaks with ProDAG

    We've heard so much in recent weeks about the threat the Supreme Court poses to reproductive rights, gun violence prevention laws, climate change, the separation of church and state, and other fundamental human rights and democratic principles. How did we get here, and how much do you really know about the Court as an institution? Join DA Germany’s Progressive Caucus on July 11 at 1:00 p.m. EST / 7:00 p.m. CEST for a conversation with Chelsey Davidson from the Take Back the Court Foundation to learn more. The discussion will range from a general overview of the court's history, the court expansion movement, and insight into the recent end-of-term decisions. This will be a great opportunity for us to learn as a community and explore what action we can take to defend our democratic rights.
