We are a diverse, friendly, politically active community of U.S citizens who are Democrats living in the Aix-Marseille region of France.  Our chapter conducts activities which are in-person when possible and also participates in on-line local, country and global events and actions.   We have learned that we can be quite effective in both ways. 

Democrats Abroad made a significant difference in the results of the 2020 elections (including in the Georgia run-offs) and our chapter played a big part, particularly in the Get Out the Vote programs.  We are looking forward to continuing this work as we head toward critical midterm elections where the balance of power in the Senate will be at stake in the face of major voter suppression efforts by Republicans in almost every state.

Our members organize events (from social gatherings to discussions of the status of organized labor or violence against women and the ERA).  We also participate in Democrats Abroad events which include visits from members of Congress and the Cabinet (some of whom are past DA members).  We have received a special “thank you” visit from the Chair of the Democratic Party and had speakers from around the globe as well as around town.  

Democrats Abroad has 8 major Caucus Groups and we have Aix-Marseille Chapter members active with all of them (LGBTQ+, Youth, Progressive, Veterans and Military Families, Hispanic, Asian/American Pacific-Islander, Black and Women’s).   We collaborate with the local US Consulate as well as businesses and educational institutions.  

As often as possible we try to commemorate or celebrate an American holiday together – from Thanksgiving to Memorial Day and we are frequently privy to discussion of history, books and cultural trends and issues which often bring new meaning to these holidays. 

There are countless ways to become involved and to benefit from membership in Democrats Abroad.  We encourage you to join us and explore the many opportunities to make a difference for yourself and for all Americans. Contact us with any questions our join now @
