Unity through diverse & inclusive Leadership!

My grandmother once said to me: Always hear others out and remain open-minded; the day you think you know everything, is the day, you have the most, yet, to learn.  

How would I describe myself:

(GER): Angenehm Anders Als Alle Anderen (Pleasantly Different Than Everyone Else)

My name is Leedonal Moore and I also go by the name Jazzmin Dian Moore and although I’m from Mississippi, I'm a Texas State Voter.

I identify as non-binary and I recently celebrated my 40th Birthday in loving company with my Swiss partner and our 12 year old black labrador.

I am fluent in German & English and decent in eight other languages, including Sign-Language.

My passion is fencing, horse riding, cooking and bringing people closer together.

Constantly being internationally relocated, due to growing up in a military household, I learned early on of the importance of staying open minded, adapting fast to new and sometimes very stressful situations and equally staying connected to my bi-racial heritage and upbringing. 

Democrats Abroad is the community where I feel at home, where I can be who I am and where I can help others register to vote and help execute publishing different deadlines for each state so that people can properly exercise their fundamental voting rights.

It's been my greatest honor representing Democrats Abroad Switzerland on various news outlets during the 2020 elections.

I’ve been living in Zürich Switzerland for more than 16 years and since most recently also in France, where I am engulfed in the hospitality industry as a Château-Hotelier. 

I love to travel and I love to learn about different cultures. I am particularly sensitive to making sure that I properly represent the USA as a mix of many cultures and nationalities and I focus on making sure to not expect that other countries adapt to the “AMERICAN WAY”.

Today I work as a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion consultant for corporations, schools and embassies, as a TV & Radio host and event planer. And zes, i love wearing many hats. 

Initially my professional background started off in the beauty industry. While I have a Masters degree in Hair & Make Up and Communication, I worked from 2005 - 2015 as the Art Director & General Manager of a beauty company in Zürich. Hence, i have the ability to have a complete overview of all functions of a business (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Marketing, Communication, Production, Quality, Engineering, Health & Safety, HR, Finance, IT, Logistics & Distribution, Sales & Customer Service) while focusing on both, the clients and employees.

In addition I started early on in investing my time and passion in strengthening marginalized communities, especially the Black and LGBTIQ+ Community.

For my engagements I’ve received various national and international awards such as the Miss Drag Queen Switzerland 2008 title, European TOLERANTIA Award 2016 and an honorary medal for my outstanding work & activism representing Americans living abroad 2016.

If there is one thing we have learned from the past horrible administration, it's that our greatest power is to listen, trust in facts & science, invest in diversity, equity & inclusion, cast our votes and lead by example.

And During a private dinner with one of our former Ambassadors they pointed out that my greatest potential is connecting people of all ethnicities, genders, faiths, sexual orientations - encouraging them to respect, uplift and help each other in leading by example.

I believe:

  • Healthcare is a right, not a privilege
  • Black Lives Matter ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽
  • Public Education is a Public Good 🎒📚
  • A Fair Wage is a Living Wage
  • Women's Rights are Human Rights ♀️
  • Love is Love 🏳️‍🌈
  • No Human is Illegal
  • Science is Real 🔬
  • Voting Rights are Sacred 🗳️

Dear reader, I'm asking you: How can I help?

Love & Light

  • WEP and Americans Abroad—How To Stop It Hurting Retirement Plans

    This webinar, “WEP and Americans Abroad”, focuses on an issue which impacts on many Americans living abroad. Democrats Abroad has been working on the elimination of WEP since the early 2000s. We know in the last Congress that HR 82 Social Security Fairness Act of 2022 which would have repealed WEP did not pass. In the current Congress, HR 82 Social Security Fairness Act of 2023 was introduced in the House on January 9th 2023 by Representative Gareth Graves (Republican, Louisiana District 6). Again, we have a bill that eliminates WEP.

    The DA Seniors Caucus is currently working on WEP elimination and this webinar stems from this activity. What is WEP? Will it affect me when I retire abroad? How do I prepare for it? What if as a retired person I receive a pension from abroad as well as Social Security – how will WEP affect me?  Please attend this webinar to have answers to these important questions.

    Our guest speaker is Nancy Altman from Social Security Works and she will speak to us about WEP and answer our questions about WEP.

    About our Speaker:

    Nancy J. Altman has a forty-five year background in the areas of Social Security and private pensions. She is president of Social Security Works and chair of the Strengthen Social Security coalition.
    Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi appointed Ms. Altman to a six-year term, starting October 1, 2017, on the Social Security Advisory Board. The seven-person Board is a bipartisan, independent federal government agency established in 1994 to advise the President, Congress, and the Commissioner of Social Security.
    Ms. Altman is the author of The Battle for Social Security: From FDR’s Vision to Bush’s Gamble (John Wiley & Sons, 2005) and The Truth About Social Security: The Founders’ Words Refute Revisionist History, Zombie Lies, and Common Misunderstandings (Strong Arm Press, 2018). She is also co-author of Social Security Works! Why Social Security Isn’t Going Broke and How Expanding It Will Help Us All (The New Press, 2015). She has shared her Social Security expertise on numerous television and radio shows, including PBS NewsHour, MSNBC, and FOX News. She has published op-eds in dozens of newspapers including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today.
    From 1983 to 1989, Ms. Altman was on the faculty of Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and taught courses on private pensions and Social Security at the Harvard Law School. In 1982, she was Alan Greenspan’s assistant in his position as chairman of the bipartisan commission that developed the 1983 Social Security amendments.
    From 1977 to 1981, she was a legislative assistant to Senator John C. Danforth (R-Mo) and advised the Senator with respect to Social Security issues. From 1974 to 1977, she was a tax lawyer with Covington & Burling, where she handled a variety of private pension matters.
    Ms. Altman chairs the Board of Directors of the Pension Rights Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection of beneficiary rights. She is a member of the Boards of Directors of the Alliance for Retired Americans Educational Fund, the Economic Opportunity Institute, Latinos for the Secure Retirement, and the Institute for America’s Future. In the mid-1980’s, she was on the organizing committee and the first board of directors of the National Academy of Social Insurance.

    Banks could refuse women a credit card until the Equal Opportunity Act of 1974 was signed into law.

    Banks could deny a credit card to an unmarried woman, and if a woman was married her husband was required to cosign.

    Women could be fired for getting pregnant until the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 prohibited sexual discrimination on the basis of


    Women could not serve on juries in all 50 states until 1975 when the Supreme Court finally decided they could not be excluded.

    Workplace sexual harassment was not considered sex discrimination until 1980 when the Equal

    Employment Opportunity Commission determined it was. It took the Supreme Court until 1986 to make the first ruling on the matter.

    Women were banned from front-line combat until the pentagon rescinded that rule in 2013. Women have always been a part of US military service but were not allowed on the front lines.

    All 50 states did not have laws regarding spousal rape until 1993. In fact, by 1996, only 16 states had repealed all of their exemptions to marital rape, and only 33 states had partially repealed exemptions.

    Women still pay more than men for health insurance and sex discrimination was not outlawed in insurance until 2010 when the Affordable Care Act started to address the discrepancy.

    Unmarried women could not obtain birth control until 1972. Although the FDA approved the pill in the 1960s it was only available via prescription in limited places to married women for "family planning".

    LOVE IS LOVE.....

    Just a quick reminder: LOVE IS LOVE! 🏳️‍🌈 🏳️‍⚧️

    It could be easy to think that LGBTIQ+ people are continuing to move toward acceptance and equality, but in fact, the opposite is true. 

    All around the United States, anti-LGBTIQ+ forces want nothing less than to eliminate openly LGBTIQ+ people from the fabric of society. They are launching fast, furious, and coordinated attacks that are astonishing in their breadth, cruelty, and flagrant disregard for personal freedoms.

    There are several different ways in which anti-LGBTIQ+ activists are attacking LGBTIQ+ people and their right to exist. The goal of these activists is to eliminate LGBTQ people from society by:

    👎🏾 Erasing LGBTQ people from schools and public life.

    👎🏾 Criminalizing and banning transition so transgender people can’t be themselves. 

    👎🏾 Enshrining inequality. 

    👎🏾 Erecting systemic and structural barriers to make change harder. 

    👎🏾 Silencing supporters.

    These harmful narratives seek to push LGBTIQ+ people to the corners of society and have them fear for their lives.

    One box can’t fit everybody in it

    But we sure like to collect them!

    Everybody is a qualified expert

    On other folks’ business

    While neglecting their own

    Oh, and we do love the tabloids!

    Who hit and cussed out who

    Who got their lips made

    And whose cheeks got done up

    Even in the fitness studio

    People check their Instagram

    While pretending to work out

    We listen to the daily news

    And get upset about everything

    While the poor lady on the bus

    With her hand out gets ignored

    We move in enclosed spaces

    While seeking freedom

    We sing songs of blues

    While searching for happiness

    We watch others actions

    Instead of keeping track of our own

    We curse the current politics

    Yet refuse to get actively involved

    We stay chained in conceptions

    While seeking enlightenment

    We fear getting old and death

    Both of which are inevitable

    Guess we just be human

  • International Women's Day


    This March, we are joining the Democrats Abroad Global Women's Caucus as we celebrate Women’s History Month.

    Congress first declared March as Women’s History month in 1987. Since then, every year there’s a Presidential Proclamation to announce the month and to honor women who have made a notable impact in history.

    According to the National Women’s History Alliance, “In February 1980, President Carter issued the first Presidential Proclamation declaring the Week of March 8th 1980 as National Women’s History Week. In the same year, Representative Barbara Mikulski, who at the time was in the House of Representatives, and Senator Orrin Hatch co-sponsored a Congressional Resolution for National Women’s History Week 1981. This co-sponsorship demonstrated the wide-ranging political support for recognizing, honoring, and celebrating the achievements of American women.


    During March, Women’s History Month celebrates the vital role of women in history and acknowledges women’s contributions to culture and society.

    But historically, the contributions of Black women, some of who have been behind several of the world’s impactful social movements, lacks wide recognition or are entirely erased from public historical narratives. Yet, the very fabric of society would be different without the contributions from Black women who contributed and helped shape our world, as well as the committed Black women who have continued the exceptional work set by their forerunners.


    International Women's Day is celebrated annually on 8 March to recognise women’s social, economic, cultural, and political achievements, raise awareness of discrimination and bias, and inspire and empower us to take action for equality.

    Black women and girls exist at the intersection of racism and misogyny, they are marginalised and discriminated against for being Black and being women – we live in both identities at all times.

    In seeking gender equality, the mainstream women’s movement lacks real inclusion in celebrating Black women’s achievements and raising issues that affect the intersecting identities, not because of their lack of participation in eradicating gender oppression. But the result of anti-Blackness, lack of real allyship and solidarity. Black women’s challenges are generally ignored or not raised at all.

    Message from the Chair

    Democrats Abroad Global Black Caucus: Happy Presidents Day

    Dear Brothers, Sisters, Allies, and Friends, 

    Happy Presidents Day! 

    This song from the musical Hamilton is one of my faves – especially the vocals on the lyric of “you and I”. It finishes with a very special, poignant, and gut-wrenching cameo from my favorite President – especially given the moment that it represented in our history.

    This song really brings home one of the roots of our Democracy – that it’s not about a person but about a nation. 

    It also pulls out of Washington’s speech a unique and special keystone of our nation: we have the freedom to learn and grow from our failures – in pursuit of a more perfect union.


    • Flip the Wisconsin State Supreme Court: On April 4th, there is an election for one WI State Supreme Court seat that, if we win, will flip the court to be Dem-aligned and have a profound effect on not just Wisconsin, but the whole nation! 
    • Please consider making a donation to the Global Black Caucus 

    Why Flipping the Wisconsin Supreme Court matters:

    • The CNN article linked above re: gerrymandering provides a great lens on why the political alignment of State Supreme Courts matter. Add to that the recent decisions by State Supreme Courts regarding state constitutional provisions on bodily autonomy and you have two of MANY examples of why these courts are critical for our rights and our democracy.
    • Wisconsin is one of the most gerrymandered states in the Union and, with the very unbalanced Republican state legislature, unlikely to change via electoral efforts to the legislative branch. The Conservative-leaning court has upheld the maps that the gerrymandered legislature has been putting forward.
    • However, if we win this April 4th seat, it flips the court to become a Democratic-leaning court. They can then bring the case back that challenges the current map and, ideally, overturn it and require a new map with fair districts.
    • With a new map, 2024 elections could be on new maps and, given that more than a majority of Wisconsinites vote Democrat, flip a lot of state and federal legislative seats!
    • As Wisconsin goes, so goes the country!

    Quick thoughts on Republican Presidential candidates: “Will Donald Trump will be their candidate?”

    • Short answer – I believe so.
    • Longer answer – the structural conditions that led to Donald Trump winning the nomination with about 35% of the primary votes are still in place. While some states do proportional distribution of delegates, many are still winner takes all for Republicans. Thus, the more Republicans run for office, the more likely they are to split the vote and not get enough delegates to get nominated. Trump, however, has a dedicated base within the Republican party who will vote for him come Hell or High Water. Given the egos in the GOP, I can’t imagine them finding a way to elevate one candidate over the others in order to negate the Trump 1/3rd effect.
    • Whether I’m right or wrong, we MUST prepare for a brutal and very close election again. Whoever wins the nomination – Trump, DeSantis, Haley, Pence, Hogan, etc… - will be devastating for our nation and our Democracy. The best way to ensure we win the White House in 2024 so is to, right now, fund and fuel the foundation and infrastructure of the Democratic party so that we continue to improve our organizing efforts, ensure the tech backbone is strong and effective, and that we’re doing everything possible to protect voter’s right.

    Jennifer McClellan, a veteran Democratic state senator, won a special election for Virginia’s Fourth Congressional District on Tuesday, according to The Associated Press, making her the first Black woman to represent the state in Congress.

    Ms. McClellan centered her campaign on legislation she spearheaded as a state senator — issues she championed, like voting rights, environmental protection, and abortion access, often dovetailed with the national Democratic platform.

    “I passed legislation to protect our right to vote and our right to a clean environment. I led the fight for our reproductive freedom,” Ms. McClellan said in a television ad. “I’ll take that same fight with me to Congress.”

    What's in a name...

    What’s In a Name?


    I hear you name me

    Depositing me in your closet

    Confined in a cardboard box

    Scrambling amongst the forsaken


    I hear you name me

    The sound with the two syllables

    Or did it used to be one?

    One-size assumedly fits all


    I hear you name me

    While trying to deny

    My illustrious presence

    Disconcerted by history


    I hear you name me

    an unnecessary concession

    a sanction for a birthday party

    claiming ownership with immunity


    I hear you name me

    My suffering a mockingbird blues

    Coinciding with your profits

    Recriminations decidedly ignored


    I hear you name me

     A brand mark with a capital N

    So, playing deaf and dumb

    I simply ignore your ass

    Sidney Poitier


    Sidney Poitier

    Born February 20, 1927, Sidney Poitier's pioneering career has had a tremendous impact on American culture. In the early '50s, he was the top and virtually sole African-American film star—the first black actor to become a hero to both black and white audiences.

    Poitier was also the first black actor to win a prestigious international film award. With his unique career, Sidney Poitier helped change many stubborn racial attitudes that had persisted in this country for centuries. He has built the bridges and opened the doors for countless artists in succeeding generations. He is an actor who stood for hope, for excellence, and who has given happiness to millions of people around the world. Paying tribute to Sidney Poitier in 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "He is a man of great depth, a man of great social concern, a man who is dedicated to human rights and freedom."

    As the women wolves gather...


    As the women wolves gather 

    Amidst the midnight gloom
    Seeking along the dank shores
    Peevishly stalking lonesome paths
    While fending wounds inflicted
    Upon the body’s bruised frame
    The smell of decay assailing
     Throbbing, hobbling joints
    Instincts long subdued awakening
    Inciting despair, disgust, indignation,
    Until their downtrodden outcry
    Ascends with outraged reproach
    Signifying a requisite, an urgency
    An essential compulsion
    For insurgency
