The Americans Abroad Caucus was founded by Rep Carolyn Maloney (D-NY12) and is currently chaired by Rep. Maloney and Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV01). A recent register of the Americans Abroad Caucus members is here.
The caucus helps guide us when we have reforms to present, problems that require government support or questions that relate to the federal government. They are critical help in our work to provide tax relief for Americans abroad, plus expand voting rights, address our immigration issues, and so much more.
We have prepared this participation guide and this webpage for handheld devices which includes everything you need for participating in the Americans Abroad Caucus Membership Drive. If you have any questions about the campaign or the advice in the guides please send questions to [email protected]

Please join Democrats Abroad Lion City Committee for our Annual General Meeting.

We will also be voting on whether to approve the most recent update to our country committee by-laws. And most importantly we'll discuss what we'll be doing to get out the vote in the crucial 2022 midterms and hear your ideas about how we can make 2022 a success!
We need to ensure we have a quorum so please do RSVP and tell your fellow DA Lion City members to do the same!
