    Important April 2020 Updates from DA Sweden

    A lot of important updates since the Democrats Abroad 2020 Global Presidential Primary are here:

    📌 Coronavirus Crisis

    Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Sweden Executive Committee has decided to extend the period during which we will not be having in-person events until April 15th. We continue to assess the situation on an ongoing basis, and will let members know when we will be resuming in-person events. 

    We are preparing a number of online/remote events, including for voter registration assistance, and are shifting our focus to outreach via social media and phone banking. 

    📌 Voter Registration for 2020

    📌 Democrats Abroad Delegates to the 2020 DNC - Applications Now Accepted!

    During the week of August 17th, the Democrats Abroad delegation will join the other state party delegations at the Democratic National Convention to formally choose our nominee for President of the United States.

    Any DA member is eligible to run, and the Affirmative Action Committee strongly emphasizes the importance of DA members from historically-underrepresented backgrounds to run as delegate candidates in showing the world the diversity of our Party and our members around the world.

    Forms to declare delegates’ candidacy are now available online. Please fill it out as soon as possible and return it no later than April 17th.

    Workshops with Democrats Abroad about becoming a 2020 DNC Delegate are happening on these dates next week:

    📌 Earth Day 50th Anniversary Panel Discussion

    On April 21st, the eve of the 50th Anniversary celebration of Earth Day, the Democrats Abroad Global Women's Caucus will present a virtual panel discussion on "Women and the Environment". Sign up to attend here.

    📌 FAQs on the Coronavirus Aid, Relief & Economic Safety (CARES) Act from the Democrats Abroad Taxation Tax Force

    Democrats Abroad has received many hundreds of emails from members interested in understanding the provisions of the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, their eligibility for support and how and when they might receive it.

    In order to prevent delays in our responses, the Democrats Abroad Taxation Tax Force has developed from member emails a FAQs document that aims to address the key concerns we have been hearing. The Taxation Task Force will continue to add to it as needed.

    📌 Volunteer with Democrats Abroad Sweden

    Did you know that Democrats Abroad is an entirely volunteer-run organization? That means everything we do to reach out to voters abroad is because of the dedication and commitment of our amazing volunteers.

    Can you help take action with us?

    No commitment is too small, and working together has collective power!

    Yours,
