Welcome to Democrats Abroad Haiti!

We invite Americans living in Haiti to get involved with DA Haiti,  the country committee for US Democrats living here. Please join Democrats Abroad and watch this space for upcoming announcements of meetings and events. If you're interested in putting on an event yourself or helping to get out the vote, please get in touch with DA Haiti Chair, Amber Walsh, or Americas Regional Vice Chair, Jody Quinnell, who will help you coordinate and promote the activity.

    DA Haiti Hosts Solidarity Event for March for Our Lives

    Solidarity matters!  On Saturday, March 24th DA Members and friends gathered for social media posts to support the student-led March for Our Lives Movement to demand the safety of our children and action from our representatives for gun control.  We also watched a film, Making a Killing: Guns, Greed and the NRA, to raise our awareness on the issue.  Please see some pictures below from the event plus coverage by Democrats Abroad and the New York Times.

    Gingerbread Restaurant in Port-au-Prince, Haiti

    Democrats Abroad Haiti - Annual General Assembly

    To celebrate our status as an official chapter and to accelerate our efforts for the 2018 election, we are going to hold our Annual General Assembly on Thursday, June 28th at Gingerbread Restaurant in Pacot at 6pm.  We will give a presentation of what we have been doing since we had our last General Assembly in November 2017 and talk about activities going forward.  It will be a chance to learn and see if there are ways you want to get involved.  Of course, we will also make this a social event with lots of time to mingle with other democrats and eat and drink at Gingerbread Restaurant (which is a perfect launching point for Oloffson and Yanvalou activities).

    Please come and bring a friend – we want to double our membership this year from 90 to 180! 

    We also have an open position on our Executive Committee – Executive Vice Chair – as Drew Lebowitz recently left Haiti. This is an important leadership role which would help coordinate DA Haiti events and communications. Nominations will be accepted and the election will be held during the meeting.

    There is a lot on the line for this year's election - come learn and see how you might want to get involved! Also, just come to hang out and have a drink with other democrats! We will keep the meeting short and the socializing longer!

    We look forward to seeing you on the 28th (please RSVP here) and please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions or ideas!
