We're proud to have a part in passing the most progressive party platform ever in the history of the party!
Why is the Platform important?
This document is comprised of the ideas, goals, and beliefs, and serves as the declaration of how we plan to move our country forward.
"Democrats believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls.
It’s a simple but powerful idea: We are stronger together."
Some of our amazing members have gone through both the Democratic Platform and the Republican Platform, and summarized them into the top ten issues comparison. Whose values reflect the issues you care about?

During the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, PA Democrats Abroad reached out to delegates from these 14 states that do not recognize the voting rights of US Citizens born overseas who have not lived in the US: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Utah.
We are pleased that New Jersey changed their voter registration laws in 2017 and now permits New Jersey citizens living abroad to vote. The other 13 states still disenfranchise citizens born abroad who have never lived in the US. This has got to change!
Over the last few months, many hard working Democrats Abroad have been developing the DA Platform. You can find more information about that here (Democrats Abroad 2016 Platform).
We have also created some new posters to help highlight and spread the word about Issues Affecting Americans Abroad - share this post or click on the images to download a printable color or black and white poster.
