Democrats Abroad is the official arm of the Democratic Party of the United States, working as a state party for US citizens living abroad.

Currently, Democrats Abroad Korea (DAROK) is planning a 2019 election to form our executive committee and come back into compliance. When we do this, DAROK can fully participate in Democrats Abroad and its 2020 Global Presidential Primary, which includes selecting delegates to attend the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee.
We need volunteers and LEADERS to help us make this happen. Stop by our information table and sign up to make a difference in 2020.

"P.U.S.S.I Whipped: Cats, Feminism, & a Sh*t-ton of Glitter!"
The CATS have been watching us and they are not happy. For a hundred years, they have sent down esteemed CAT leaders to infiltrate Earth by posing as famous women in politics, entertainment, and academia. Unfortunately, their mercy mission has failed. Now, they have returned with their P.U.S.S.I. Fleet to claim what is rightfully theirs: complete and total rule of the universe.
