Paris Vice Chair Candidate Meagan Lopez

I am Meagan Lopez, and I would be honored to be your Vice Chair for the Paris Chapter of DAF. In December, I left the New York Times as their Global Digital Business Director to start my own independent media consultancy. I have lived abroad for nine years, but, like most of you, feel a strong sense of duty to our nation in its time of great need. I became a director for a ground-breaking creative arts therapy program for survivors of the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. There, I have seen up close our nation’s gun violence epidemic — and I have also seen how a community of people united can turn toxicity, fear and violence into a demand for action and positive change.

NOW, more than ever, is the time we must do just that.

It is imperative that we maximize our voices and votes as Democrats Abroad in Paris, that we fight for justice and the issues that affect us all. We must take our country back. My priorities are climate change, women’s issues, gun regulation, fair taxation for expats, and ensuring that Democrats win in 2020. Let’s do our part. Thank you!
