    When Connie Throws a (Democratic) Party People Come...!

    Please join us for a very special evening with Connie Borde, Joe Smallhoover, Ada Shen, and hosted with many of current and previous leaders of Democrats Abroad France.

Join us to hear from her and others about how the Party, Democrats Abroad, and Democrats Abroad France have evolved over the years to meet today's crucial political moment -- and what to expect in the days ahead. This is a Feelgood Fundraising event to benefit Democrats Abroad France's critical Get Out the Vote efforts. A suggested donation of 25 EUR is kindly requested - every EURO is welcome. Host committee is also in formation. RSVP below for meeting details and to donate. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

    Global Voter Assistance: September 24th

    Did you know every eligible American living abroad can vote in U.S. elections this year? 

    Do you have questions about how to vote? Click the chat bubble at the bottom of this screen and we can help you find the answers.  

    Join us September 24th, or any Thursday till November to speak to a volunteer LIVE on Zoom about questions you're having about voting from abroad. We'll be here from 6-10pm CEST (Paris) / 12-4pm (U.S. Eastern) 

    How is it done on Zoom? You'll come into the main room and be paired 1:1 with a volunteer into a breakout room to ensure privacy and that you can get all your questions answered. It couldn't be easier. 

    More information: The easiest way to request your ballot is at VoteFromAbroad.org. It takes just a few minutes to complete and send in your form to the US state where you last lived. The website will guide you step by step. In most cases it’s pretty simple. But if you’re new to voting abroad, or if you haven’t done it in a while, you may have additional questions. That’s why we’ll be here every Sunday until election day to help.

    If you can’t make it, you can always email us at helpdesk@votefromabroad.org or send in your question through our online help bubble, and a volunteer will get back to you.

    Democratic Yoga with Gretchen


    This is a recurring event.

    Yoga is so popular today for its many benefits it offers the mind, body and soul. But maybe you've never tried yoga. Or maybe you've tried and thought it wasn't for you? Yoga is for everyone, and this Radiant Warrior vinyasa flow set is perfect for you. If you are already a confirmed yogi, come along for a slow flow that gets back to the basics. 

    If you have the following, please bring it to class: a yoga mat or some kind of mat that doesn't slip, a couple of yoga blocks or thick books (Harry Potter style), a strap or fabric belt or scarf, a small pillow or cushion or towel, and some water to drink.

    Gretchen has done yoga for many years and has completed the 200 hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training Certification with Yoga Farm Ithaca. She is chair of Democrats Abroad Grenoble, national Volunteer Coordinator, and teaches English at the Université Savoie Mont Blanc in Chambéry. She votes in Maine.

    This event is A Feelgood Fundraiser for Democrats Abroad France, and benefits our critical 2020 "Get Out the Vote" Efforts this Fall. Any contribution is welcome; 10 EUR per person is suggested. Please give here. Thank you! 

    DISCLAIMER: Yoga is a physical exercise that can include some strenuous activity. Before engaging in any physical exercise or activity, all participants are advised to consult with a medical professional to ensure that they are capable of participating in any exercise routine or class. If you are pregnant or have any major illnesses, you are strongly urged and advised to seek the advice of a medical professional or specialist familiar with your personal situation before beginning any exercise routine or class. Democrats Abroad France (DAF) is not an official yoga class provider nor a medical adviser and cannot advise participants as to the risks involved in participating in a yoga class at home outside of the in-person supervision of a certified yoga teacher. Accordingly, all participants in home-based Zoom yoga classes led by DAF or any DAF members are thus participating at their own risk. DAF will not be held responsible for any harm or injuries endured during said classes.
