Paris Chair Candidate Reed Kennedy

My name is Reed Kennedy. I am running for Chair of the newly formed Paris chapter of Democrats Abroad France (DAF) because I am excited to help build the movement to engage and energize progressive voters here in Paris. I feel I have the experience to leverage the history of DAF combined with the skills and vision to focus on the future.

Since 2017 I have served as a Member-At-Large of the Executive Committee, Co-Chair of the Diversity Caucus and as a member of the Paris Chapter Steering Committee. In each of these roles I feel I have made a meaningful contribution.

I am particularly proud of my work with the Diversity Caucus, where I have expanded our membership through improved outreach and events. We have had great success bringing together people of every ethnicity for political discussions, film screenings, happy hours and our MLK tribute at the American Church.

For me DAF has proven to be an amazing platform to sound our collective political voice from afar. I would like to build upon my experience and continue serving the organization as Chair of the Paris chapter. I appreciate your consideration and vote.
