Paris Vice Chair Candidate Amy Below

My name is Amy Below and I’m running for Vice Chair of the Paris chapter of Democrats Abroad France.

I have served the DAF community as an elected national Member-at-Large; Chair of the DAF Education Policy Group; Co-Chair of the DAF Paris Steering Committee; and by creating, organizing and delivering last year’s popular 6-part DAF American Government Seminar Series. I was also instrumental in arranging for David Byrne’s 2018 tour to liaise with local chapters of Democrats Abroad / Vote from Abroad to register voters in more than 10 European cities, including shout-outs by Mr. Byrne during each show. I’m all about looking to achieve our goals in new and creative ways.

We have serious work ahead of us. The current administration has sought to restrict the rights and freedoms of all Americans and could seek to further restrict our specific rights as Americans abroad. It has never been more essential to fight for the democratic- and Democratic- ideals that we believe in.

If elected Paris Chapter Vice Chair, my focus will be to devote my energy, effectiveness and creativity to building the Paris Chapter of DAF into an increasingly active, engaged and powerful community of voters.

Thanks a lot!
