  • Make "Good Trouble"

    and Save Our Democracy!

    A fundraiser in celebration of the life and work of the late Georgia Congressman and Civil Rights leader, John R. Lewis.

    john_lewis_selma_1965.1c.jpg 

    Democrats Abroad is commemorating Congressman John Lewis with two online screenings of the documentary "John Lewis - Get in the Way" on July 11, various actions days after Congress resumes legislative business, and a Forum on July 17, the one-year anniversary of his passing.

    Often described as the conscience of the Congress, John Lewis was a friend to Democrats Abroad. To raise funds for DA’s GOTV efforts, we ask everyone—whether you attend or not—to donate $19.65—or for those who wish to be a Gold Star Supporter, $80 representing the 80 years of John Lewis’ extraordinary, courageous life.

    Please join Democrats Abroad to honor the memory of John Lewis and carry forward the flame of his dedication to voting rights for all.

    Fundraiser for Legislative Advocacy

    Help Reinstate New Jersey Law for Overseas Voters to Vote in State Elections

    🚨 Attention New Jersey Voters 🚨

    DONATE NOW to help us reach and mobilize New Jersey Democrats Abroad!

    New Jersey currently does not allow all overseas voters to vote in state elections, even though overseas voters could vote in state elections before Chris Christie pushed through a change in the law in 2017.

    Assemblywoman Joann Downey has introduced a bill, NJ A5306, to change the law back--and with your donation you can help get it passed!

    If you're from New Jersey, you can also directly help pass the bill for this campaign as a constituent. Contact your State Senator and urge them to co-sponsor NJ S3761, which restores voting rights for NJ Overseas Voters. You can find contact info and a call script here!

    [Mobile device users, please scroll down to donate!]

    Your generosity makes sure we can keep working to make legislative change and help get out the vote for states that have elections this year!

    Kendra Borgen's 2021 Birthday Fundraiser

    Having volunteered in politics since I was a teenager I have found a wonderful home within Democrats Abroad – an all volunteer organization.

    We run on blood, sweat, tears, & donations!

    During my time in Democrats Abroad leadership I’ve noticed how expensive it is to be involved. Going to regional and global meetings is fundamental in getting good work done and is important and instrumental in team building. However, it comes at each individual’s own expense.

    I believe everyone should be able to volunteer at the highest level and want to help keep these meetings accessible to people, who may not be as financially flexible, by fundraising for Democrats Abroad Travel Fund.

    I had hoped to spend my 40th Birthday in an exotic location but luckily I’m in Amsterdam and you can help me celebrate my 40th birthday virtually. Please help me reach my fundraising goal: $2021 in 2021 

    Got $40 for my 40th? – Or even $4, or $400 if you’re so inclined –  hit that donate button.

    I cannot wait until we can celebrate in person together again.

    Thanks in advance!!!

  • #Medicare4All #DAResists #HealthCareRefugee #DAresists #Medicare4all

    About 15 years ago while visiting the neurologist for migraines, an MRI scan (at a cost of $0) turned up 2 benign tumors. I had MRI scans annually for the next decade. About 3 years ago, the tumors were removed (at a cost of $0). I continue to have follow up MRIs. I see neuro ophthalmologists and neuro surgeons. No cost. I have had 2 D&Cs, 1 C section and 1 vaginal birth - all no cost. Medications are subsidized. Can’t go home to the US because of pre existing conditions and unable to get affordable insurance.
