    Make "Good Trouble"

    and Save Our Democracy!

    A fundraiser in celebration of the life and work of the late Georgia Congressman and Civil Rights leader, John R. Lewis.

    john_lewis_selma_1965.1c.jpg 

    Democrats Abroad is commemorating Congressman John Lewis with two online screenings of the documentary "John Lewis - Get in the Way" on July 11, various actions days after Congress resumes legislative business, and a Forum on July 17, the one-year anniversary of his passing.

    Often described as the conscience of the Congress, John Lewis was a friend to Democrats Abroad. To raise funds for DA’s GOTV efforts, we ask everyone—whether you attend or not—to donate $19.65—or for those who wish to be a Gold Star Supporter, $80 representing the 80 years of John Lewis’ extraordinary, courageous life.

    Please join Democrats Abroad to honor the memory of John Lewis and carry forward the flame of his dedication to voting rights for all.

    Kendra Borgen's 2021 Birthday Fundraiser

    Having volunteered in politics since I was a teenager I have found a wonderful home within Democrats Abroad – an all volunteer organization.

    We run on blood, sweat, tears, & donations!

    During my time in Democrats Abroad leadership I’ve noticed how expensive it is to be involved. Going to regional and global meetings is fundamental in getting good work done and is important and instrumental in team building. However, it comes at each individual’s own expense.

    I believe everyone should be able to volunteer at the highest level and want to help keep these meetings accessible to people, who may not be as financially flexible, by fundraising for Democrats Abroad Travel Fund.

    I had hoped to spend my 40th Birthday in an exotic location but luckily I’m in Amsterdam and you can help me celebrate my 40th birthday virtually. Please help me reach my fundraising goal: $2021 in 2021 

    Got $40 for my 40th? – Or even $4, or $400 if you’re so inclined –  hit that donate button.

    I cannot wait until we can celebrate in person together again.

    REQUEST YOUR BALLOT & VOTE 2020

    U.S. CITIZENS: NEED TO REGISTER TO VOTE IN NOVEMBER?
    We all know that this will be the most important election of our lifetimes. We MUST vote, no matter how difficult.
    Democrats Abroad is here to help in any way we can.
    If you have not yet registered and requested your ballot by e-mail, it is important that you do it now to ensure your right to vote, even in these difficult times.
    There are several things you can do:
    **Our new self-registration software is easy to use. Just go to www.votefromabroad.org and follow the instructions. Anyone who will be 18 by November 3, 2020 can register and request their ballot be e-mailed.
    **If you need assistance or someone to walk you through the process, let us know.
    **A few States require an actual signature to be mailed. We can help with that.
    **Or, if your signature needs to be scanned into the registration form and you don't have a printer or scanner, we can meet with you (by appointment) in a safe, masked, socially distant environment and take care of it for you.
    Just contact us at [email protected] and our team members will be glad to assist you.
    Voting has never been so important.

  • VOTING SERVICES RETURNED TO CONSULATES

    Americans abroad can once again use their embassies to send ballots and voting material back to the US, thanks to Senator Tim Kaine and a Democrats Abroad webinar call.

    On May 8th, Democrats Abroad was honored to speak with Senator Tim Kaine on a zoom call. During the course of the call, one of our members from Kazakhstan noted that they were no longer able to use their consulate to send in their ballot. We asked the Senator about this issue, and he immediately suggested that we should work on a remedy together. We got in touch immediately and are delighted to share the following message from Senator Kaine with all DA members worldwide:

    We’re happy to report back that after some persistent engagement over the last few weeks, the State Department has agreed to revise its guidelines and will now provide voting assistance services during Phase I of its reopening plan. It is our understanding that most State facilities are shifting into Phase I within the week. 

    Under State’s “Diplomacy Strong” reopening plan, Phase 0 (pandemic-driven skeleton staffing) permitted only life-or-death services and emergency repatriations. Phase I permits resumption of contact-free mission critical services and partial re-staffing. Voting assistance was previously categorized as a non-essential service for Phase II, which some locations may not move to for several weeks or even months.  However, as we pointed out, the ability to vote certainly meets the definition of mission critical in an election year, and the standard use of secure ballot collection boxes does not require any face-to-face contact.

    State advised all embassies and consulates of this change on June 4. At our further recommendation, State also directed embassies and consulates to message out their current ballot acceptance policies to all U.S. citizens in their districts, and to continuously provide updates if their local policy changes.

    There may still be some locations where voting assistance services will not be possible in the short term due to external issues (such as local movement restrictions limiting access to the embassy, or airport closures preventing international diplomatic pouch shipments). However, at minimum Americans at those locations will now know in advance if they need to make alternate arrangements.

    Thank you again for flagging this for us, and please do keep us posted if you hear anything further from Democrats Abroad’s members.

    Democrats Abroad would like to send a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to Senator Kaine for his assistance on this important issue. The voting process is a sacred right for all American citizens, no matter which country they call home. Our members are grateful that our voices and concerns will be heard and that they will be addressed as befitting our status as citizens of the United States of America.

               * I want to vote in the 2020 elections--What should I do now?

               * I'm already a registered voter and/or my state always sends my blank ballot. Why should I send in the FPCA form?
