Chair, Madrid Chapter

We all know what’s at stake in the 2020 election. To this end, voter turnout is essential. And I want to help.

               A Pacific Northwest native (Portland, OR), my feet are now firmly planted on both sides of the pond after permanently settling in Spain in 2007. I joined Democrats Abroad in 2014 and became increasingly active in the run-up to the 2016 election, finally assuming my current position as Madrid Chair.

               Those who know me are aware of my passion for social justice and improving the lives and well-being of others. In this vein, I applaud DA for its vital role on the political landscape back home. Our members are uniquely poised with an outside perspective that translates to transformative, positive and long-lasting action when we cast our ballots.

Thank you for granting me the opportunity to serve!

    Date: Wednesday, September 30th.
    Time: 7 PM.

    Our in-person debate viewings have always been fun and spirited, followed by stimulating commentary amongst attendees.

    We’re looking forward to bringing this same energy to an online setting and sharing it with you.

    This debate, to be filmed September 29th in Cleveland and moderated by Fox News, is sure to provide plenty of fodder for conversation.

    El mundo está en llamas.


    En una catástrofe sin precedentes, incendios forestales están haciendo estragos en toda la Costa Oeste de los EE.UU., con la consecuente pérdida de hogares, empleos, parques nacionales, mascotas y recuerdos.

    De vidas humanas.

    Estos incendios son una de las consecuencias tangibles provocadas por las acciones de la administración de Trump en lo que al medioambiente se refiere (su salida del Acuerdo de París, la eliminación del cambio climático de la lista de amenazas para la seguridad nacional, aflojamiento de las restricciones en lo referido a la emisión de gases tóxicos, y un largo etcétera), pues la Union of Concerned Scientists viene advirtiéndonos ya desde el año 2011: <<existe una fuerte relación entre el cambio climático y los incendios forestales>>.

    Más nos vale hacerle caso.

    Tanto nos hemos acostumbrado a las declaraciones polémicas de Trump que ahora casi ni nos inmutamos cuando los titulares rezan las últimas barbaridades pronunciadas por su boca.

    Sin embargo, nunca contento si no está en el primero plano de los telediarios, parece que el Presidente se ha propuesto superarse a sí mismo, infligiendo todavía más dolor y atacando a los defensores del mismo pueblo que se supone que tiene que dirigir.
