Guatemala


DAGT is the official country committee for US Democrats living in Guatemala. Our mission is to inform and encourage every US Citizen in Guatemala to vote in all US elections that their state of last residence allows them to, be they local, state, general and mid-term, and to invite US Citizens to join Democrats Abroad. During 2021 we will grow our membership and encourage virtual participation, getting vaccinated, use of masks and social distancing so that we are as strong and healthy as possible as we head toward the important 2022 mid-term elections to help Democrats hold the Senate and retain the House of Representatives. Watch this space for upcoming announcements of virtual meetings and voter registration events. We encourage anyone interested in participating to get in touch.

If you have questions or would like to help with Democrats Abroad in Guatemala please contact us.

    Democrats Abroad Resolutions

    The DPCA will consider resolutions submitted by its members at the Global Meeting. Resolutions can pertain to matters of internal governance, DA's advocacy of policies, or memorializing leaders who have recently passed away. The texts of resolutions for this meeting are available as a PDF using this link. These texts are the result of a lengthy process of discussion and revisions, with all changes requiring the consent of the primary sponsors. During the meeting, a resolution may be passed, amended, rejected, or not considered due to parliamentary decisions.


    Any DA member is welcome to use a form to be recognized as a co-sponsor of an individual resolution. If you'd like to be listed publicly by name and country of residence as a co-sponsor of a particular resolution, please use the following link to complete the form: https://forms.gle/6nW1vz61RmKADVgT7  This form will close 24 hours before the meeting's start.
