Welcome to Democrats Abroad Normandy!

DA Normandy is a chapter of Democrats Abroad France, the official country committee for US Democrats living in France. We encompass the very broad regions of Normandy and Picardy. We get-together regularly for informative seminars (such as on US and French tax obligations), commemorative events (especially D-Day), and holiday celebrations (4th of July!) Our main purpose is to ensure that everyone in our region votes in US national, state and local elections on a well-informed basis. We want the Democrats back in the White House and the Congress!

Watch this space for announcements of upcoming meetings and events. If you have questions or would like to help with Democrats Abroad in Normandy and Picardy, please contact us.
