A Party for the Party in honor of Joe Smallhoover


We are excited to announce a Democrats Abroad France Paris Chapter Party fundraiser in Paris on Saturday, April 20th, to honor Joe Smallhoover’s retirement from the Democratic National Committee after twenty years of service.

Joe Smallhoover has been integral to Democrats Abroad France since 1985. He was not alone in building Democrats Abroad France into what it has become, but thanks to his foresight, sense of organization and teamwork, groundwork, and – yes -- sweat, Democrats Abroad France is one of the most active country committees around the world.

With a powerful Get Out The Vote team assisting voters and bringing in blue ballots, our voices are heard and votes counted in every key election in the United States. 

If you want to keep Trump and MAGA Republicans out of office, this is the most effective donation you can make right now!  Your donation will directly support voter registration efforts by Democrats Abroad France in critical swing states for the 2024 Presidential election. Democrats Abroad is the only Democratic State Party that runs every race!
