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, Picardy, and other parts of the Hauts-de-France. Our main purpose is to ensure that everyone in our area votes in US national, state and local elections on a well-informed basis. 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!) Watch this space for announcements of upcoming meetings and events. If you have questions or would like to help with Democrats Abroad Normandy, please contact us.

    LGBTQ+ Caucus Fall Get-Together in Paris

    It’s been a long time coming, but "enfin", an in-person event! Fred Hoffman, Co-Chair of the DA France LGBTQ+ Caucus, and Jamie Perosi-Doughty, Executive Chair of the DA France Bordeaux Chapter, look forward to welcoming you at Café Voulez-Vous in Paris for an early evening Fall get together. 
    Join Fred and Jamie for some social conversation as well as discussions concerning strategic planning
    in anticipation of the 2022 and 2024 elections. LGBTQ+ friends and allies are of course welcome to attend. 
    *** Please note that Café Voulez-Vous is graciously providing a comfortable indoor space for us: they offer a large selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks as well as a variety of food choices for purchase. ***
    Please RSVP here to let us know you’ll be attending, because there is only space for 25 people.
    Fred and Jamie hope to see you there!
