I support Democrats Abroad because I am a Democrat and especially now, I think we need to be involved in what's happening and support each other.

    Look Up! ECCC Launch Event

    Democrats Abroad new Environment and Climate Crisis Council (ECCC) cordially invites you to our inaugural event on Sunday, January 23, 2022, at 9:00 AM US Eastern Time / 3:00 PM Central European Time.

    Climate change, environmental degradation, and diversity loss are currently existential problems facing the US and every nation on this fragile planet. The Democratic Party and Democrats Abroad are harnessing efforts to shape and advocate for policies and solutions to meet these challenges, with a focus on environmental justice. 

    We are honored to have the Chair and founder of the Democratic National Committee’s Environment and Climate Crisis Council, Michelle Delgado Deatrick, to speak at this first event and help shepherd us on our journey.

    Additionally, we will discuss the structure of the organization and how we are moving forward. Everyone will have the opportunity to go into breakout rooms for a discussion. The ECCC advocates for bold climate and environmental policies and solutions within the global Democratic community. We would like to engage each of you in volunteering to augment our collective power.

    RSVP today for the official launch of our council and the opportunity to learn more about what we do and how YOU can help!

    To submit questions in advance, please email: [email protected] 

    Please support our fledgling council and efforts to get out a green Democratic vote by donating.

I live in Zapopan & have been a Democrat all my life. There are things that I think need to change(more support progressive for candidates and ideas) and I want to be part of that change.
