Democrats Abroad would like to wish Americans around the world a very happy 4th of July! We hope that you’re able to enjoy this moment with your friends and family. At the same time, we know that some of you, because of the situations in your host countries, cannot. Please know that you are in our thoughts on this Independence Day. To those of you living in countries without access to COVID vaccines, we are advocating on your behalf to the State Department, White House, and Congress to make vaccines available to all Americans overseas.
As we look at the United States from around the world, it’s clear that America is coming back – together. Thanks to the American Rescue Plan and the American Jobs Plan, people are being vaccinated, employment numbers are growing, and the US economy is recovering. This is thanks to the incredible hard work DA members like you did to help Americans overseas to vote blue in 2020.
But as we know, the work must continue – and today’s holiday reminds us of that. The 4th of July celebrates that moment in American history when we declared our independence and our right for the people to represent themselves in creating their government. At a time when Republicans are aggressively trying to suppress our voices, we need your help and active participation. Only together can we continue creating the government that we want and need. We hope you’ll join us in getting even more Americans abroad voting and engaged in the democratic process - a process that began in 1776 and continues today.
In the meantime, we wish you a happy 4th of July!
