Welcome to Democrats Abroad Bordeaux!

DA Bordeaux is a chapter of DA France, the official country committee for US Democrats living in France. Watch this space for upcoming announcements of meetings and events - we have events planned throughout the year, and encourage anyone interested in participating to get in touch using the email address listed below.

There is never a “wrong” time to join as we have monthly zoom meetings with our members which allow those who live even at the edges of the Nouvelle Aquitaine region to feel connected.  Aside from our monthly members’ meeting, we also host a monthly politico-culture discussion touching upon a variety of different subjects ranging from God in Politics to Protest Power and even Revolutions ! Tellement français n’est-ce pas ?  

We are always thinking of new events to help promote citizen action as well as just looking for an excuse to get together and share ideas!

If you have questions or would like to help with Democrats Abroad in Bordeaux, please contact us.  We are always looking for volunteers for phonebanking, to help push the vote, or just be an extra set of hands for the various holiday-themed events we host (Thanksgiving, 4th of July etc.)

So if you are in the Nouvelle Aquitaine region and looking to have a chat with like-minded Americans, then feel free to contact us using the email address listed below!

    The Bordeaux Chapter and 2022 Needs You!

    Hello everyone!

    2022 is going to be a make or break year for Democrats and for America in general. I know that Midterms are never a fun topic, but I cannot stress enough how important it is for everyone to get involved, get active, and vote this year.  Even if you've registered to vote before, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you re-register because a lot of States have changed their voting laws since the 2020 election.  

    For more more information on how to register to vote from abroad please visit the following webstie:  It has great information and is easy to follow guidelines for all States. 


    Also, your Bordeaux chapter is looking for volunteers for phone banking, events, or just overall membership activity.  If you have ideas of activities you want to do, or would be interested in attending, please let us know! For a list of February and March's activities, please see the email blast sent out at the beginning of the month. Or if you prefer, you can email us at: [email protected] 

    It's going to be a challenge, but we can't give up. There is too much at stake to lower our defenses now. So please, contact us, meet up with us, and share your ideas!

    DAF Diversity Caucus Holiday Cocktails @ The Brooklyn


    Come celebrate the holidays (and our success in quelling the "Red Wave") with the Diversity Caucus!

    As we look forward to the New Year, come out and learn more about the caucus, our work in the past and our plans for the upcoming year. Join us for a holiday cocktail (or two) at the only bar in Paris owned by a Black American. Meet new people, reconnect with old friends and learn more about how you can get involved! With razor thin margins in critical states the vote from abroad is more important than ever.
    Happy Holidays!
