Guatemala


DAGT is the official country committee for US Democrats living in Guatemala. Our mission is to inform and to 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 2020 we will grow our membership and encourage virtual participation, use of masks and social distancing so that we are as strong and healthy as possible as we head into the important general elections to help Democrats win the White House, regain the Senate and retain the House of Representatives. Watch this space for upcoming announcements of virtual meetings and 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.

    Biden-Harris 2020 Election Victory Celebration

    On Saturday December 12, 2020, Democrats Abroad Guatemala convened an online Zoom gathering to celebrate the Biden-Harris 2020 election victory. Most of the program centered on the activities and emotions related to the victory itself and how it was achieved as a team effort among Democrats, both domestically and overseas. We also spent time discussing the challenge to democracy the Trump administration presented over the past four years and during the current transition, and for anti-democratic tendencies going forward. Vincent D’Agati presented a summary of Democracy to Dictatorship written by James Wiggins. A fuller explanation of that material is available in the first two links below. Also, we spent some time sharing thoughts and perceptions on the trials and tribulations of the year 2020. For that segment, Rachael Shenyo read a poem, which is also available in the third link below.
