    DAJ Has Been Active In 2018; Still So Much More To Do

    +
    Members of DA Japan have been speaking up against the inhumane and unfair policies of the Trump White House and GOP-run Congress. We have marched, held a vigil for victims of gun violence, tweeted, signed petitions, protested in person and virtually. We have strategised, written letters to Congress and hosted DA members from around the globe at the annual Global Meeting. 

    There are only a few months left until the next election. 

    Join us in making America a country where all people are respected and given a chance to succeed. 

    Vote Democrat in 2018.

     Come to DAJ meetings and events. 

    Speak out about the issues that are important to you. 

    Tell us your ideas. 

    Help us spread the word.
