Welcome to the Lyon chapter of Democrats Abroad France!

We are Americans located in Lyon by job, by marriage, by birth, by love of things French and for many other reasons.  We all share a tug back to the USA and for that reason we organize political and social events around current trends in American life. 

We regularly march to protect the earth from climate change and to support LGBTQ rights and culture.  One of our largest events last year was a tribute to the young lives cut short by the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas high school shooting.  This year's largest event was a seminar on American ex-pat tax requirements.  

As we move into the primary and presidential election season, we plan events to educate our membership on the candidates and the issues.  

Democrats Abroad Lyon does all we can to help every American in the Lyon area participate in the vote from abroad process.  Perhaps, most important, we provide a forum for liberal and progressive Americans to voice their opinions and support each other in today's fraught political climate.

You can find our Events and News here on the Democrats Abroad website as well as on our Facebook page.  

We would be interested in hearing your ideas. Please feel free to contact us!
