    Concurso de Diseño Gráfico

    La organización Democrats Abroad (Demócratas en el Extranjero) Guadalajara tiene el gusto de anunciar su primer concurso:

    "#DiseñoCamiseta para @DAGuadalajara"

    Somos un grupo de personas que vivimos en la ZMG, ciudadanos de los EEUU y tenemos la meta de encontrar a mexicanos o residentes en México que son ciudadanos de los EEUU para que sepan que pueden votar desde acá. Nuestro proyecto como organización incluye proteger el planeta para futuras generaciones, luchar por el respeto para la dignidad humana y cuidar las relaciones bilaterales y multilaterales. Queremos apoyarnos en un buen diseño para una camiseta que llevaremos puesta en futuros eventos; la idea es que la parte de atrás de la camiseta lleve la pregunta: “¿Naciste en Estados Unidos?” La misma camiseta deberá llevar un diseño que nos identifique: “Democrats Abroad GDL” por el frente. El diseño que buscamos en el concurso debe incluir lo siguiente (nuestro nombre) en texto legible: “Democrats Abroad GDL”; en las camisetas quedará el diseño elegido en el tamaño del bolsillo de una camisa. El color de la tela de la camiseta será azul fuerte. Recomendamos que su diseño incluya opciones para imprimirse en 1, 2, o más colores.

    El concurso está abierto a estudiantes y profesionales en Diseño Gráfico y el ganador se llevará un premio de $5000 pesos. Por favor, lea las reglas del concurso a continuación.

    ¡Agradecemos su interés!

    Upcoming Events

    Hilton Guadalajara Midtown in Guadalajara, Mexico

    2020 DA Mexico Annual General Meeting

    ¡Be the Margin of Victory!

    2020 is going to be a pivotal year for the future of American democracy. At Democrats Abroad Mexico, we remain committed to mobilizing the over 200,000 United States Voters in Mexico to restore respect, dignity, and integrity to our nation’s highest offices.

    Getting Republicans out and Democrats in next year, however, is going to be a collective effort. It’s going to require us to work together nationwide like never before, keeping our eyes set on one main goal: getting each and every US voter in Mexico to vote.

    We would thus like to cordially invite you to join us in our efforts by attending the

    2020 Annual General Meeting of Democrats Abroad Mexico focused on “Being the Margin of Victory” from

    Friday, March 27 to Sunday, March 29, 2020 at the Hilton Guadalajara Midtown.


    A great series of events are planned to help us – Democrats across Mexico – connect and discuss our voter outreach efforts in 2020. These events are outlined in our tentative schedule, please check back for updates. Note: When using a US credit card, and presented the scroll down menu for issuer, choose Visa for Visa and Master for Master Card, when given a list of Mexican bank options.


    • On Friday, March 27th, we’ll kick off the weekend with a Welcome Cocktail Reception in the City of Roses on the pool terrace of the Hilton overlooking Guadalajara where we can connect with each other over drinks 6:00 PM.
    • On Saturday, March 28th, the workshops scheduled focusing on “Being the Margin of Victory will be held TBD. Following the workshops, hear from our keynote speaker who is passionate about getting out the vote in 2020 
    • On Sunday, March 29th, we will conduct our country business meeting at TBD and enjoy inspirational closing comments.

    Register today for this exciting weekend with passionate and inspiring Democrats from across Mexico! Online registration will close on March 20th, 2020. Early registration is encouraged to help us plan and to avoid "at door" registration fees.


    To attend the conference the cost is $1,500 pesos, this is an early bird offer - extended 2 weeks to January 29th.. Beginning January 30th, the cost for the main conference will increase to $1,800 through March 20th. Ticket price on the day of the conference is $1,900. Included in this cost is the opening welcome reception, workshops, keynote speaker and coffee breaks. Other costs for the event are:

    Under the rules of the Democratic Party and Democrats Abroad, a fee for attending the Sunday morning business meeting is not allowed. However, we kindly ask for a donation to cover use of the conference facility, technical equipment, copies, and supplies. We ask that you donate this amount to cover the expenses of hosting the meeting and avoid drawing down the DA Mexico treasury, which is devoted to getting out the vote.
