Nonpartisan event, organized by Democrats Abroad Philippines, open to all.
The Taxpayer Advocacy Panel (TAP) is a federal advisory committee to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that focuses on improving IRS services to US taxpayers--more about TAP here. Speaker Dr Laura Snyder lives in suburban Paris and is the only international member of TAP, where she currently serves a three-year term. She's a really valuable nonpartisan voice in the pro-repeal Citizen-Based Taxation (CBT) movement and will speak about: 1) improving IRS services to US taxpayers, 2) her survey on taxation and banking issues--more about Laura’s survey here, and 3) Association of Americans Resident Overseas (AARO) advocacy work.
Laura works on tax and banking reform from a legislative or regulatory perspective, and legal and regulatory change in relation to US taxation and banking laws. She recently presented a paper in Prague and at AARO, participated in the Bloom Where You're Planted exhibit in Paris, recorded a podcast with American Citizens Abroad, and will be presenting at the Philosophical Association of the Philippines National Conference at the University of the East, Manila.
Democrats Abroad (DA) is the official Democratic Party arm for nine million US citizens--civilian and military--living outside the United States. Our goals are to mobilize the overseas vote to elect Democratic candidates and help Americans abroad amplify issues that matter to them. We are best equipped than any organization to help overseas Americans engage in the US political process because the Democratic national party or Democratic Party known as the Democratic National Committee (DNC) recognizes us as an official "state" party. With DNC state-level recognition, we: (1) hold an official Democratic presidential primary, (2) help select the Democratic presidential candidate by also sending a voting delegation to the Democratic National Convention to represent DA Primary Voters and help decide the national party’s nominee for president, (3) represent US citizens abroad at all DNC meetings because we elect eight DA Members to hold eight positions on the Democratic National Committee to represent us, and (4) are the only official US political party of American citizens abroad because the Republican Party does not have an equivalent organization of this status. We work to reach as many US citizens as possible, in as many ways as possible, to ensure they have opportunities to stay engaged in the US political process and presidential election. In the 2018 midterm elections, Democrats Abroad helped grow the civilian overseas vote by 322% over the 2014 midterms. This year, we expect to help more than one million voters vote overseas, and win Democratic elections back home.

Please join us online, Sunday, April 26th, as we discuss Tara Westover's 2018 memoir, "Educated". Westover's memoir was the No. 1 New York Times Bestseller and touches on various, current facets that divide the US: "red states versus blue states, rural versus urban, college-educated versus not."*
We hope you can join the discussion, even if you can't read the book in time.

We're going to carry our Global Presidential Primary momentum right into planning our Get Out the Vote strategies for the rest of the election year. We'll meet at the Cafe Centrale, across from the main train station, to drink some coffee and map out ways to increase voter turnout in November. We will discuss local events we should participate in to reach new voters, look at how to phonebank, make sure everyone is familiar with Vote from Abroad and fill in some postcards to potential voters! We will also be speaking about filing your US taxes if you have questions around that topic. Let's work together to get voters to the polls!
The official business of the meeting is:
- Call to order
