Meet Kyle Inan and democratic strategist Keith Brannum who got together last week in Izmir, Turkiye to "rally Democrats living across Turkiye and amplify their impact through active participation in the U.S. electoral process."
Speaking at the meeting, Mr. Inan emphasized, "Our goal is to bridge the geographical divide and empower Democrats in Turkey to be active participants in shaping the future of our home country. The power of our collective voice and votes can extend beyond borders and reverberate back to the United States."
Mr. Brannum echoed this sentiment, highlighting the importance of a unified expat community, stating, "We have an opportunity to demonstrate the strength of our democracy, regardless of where we reside. By banding together, we can drive change and influence outcomes, ensuring that our voices are heard."

Congratulations to Becca Young, the newly elected Non-CC DPCA Voting Representative for the EMEA Region!
Becca Young lives in Morocco and votes in Virginia. She has been an active member of DA since 2008, including two years as chair of DA-Indonesia, and has participated in several DA committees at the regional and global level, first with DA-Asia Pacific and now DA-EMEA since her move to Morocco in 2015. She currently serves as co-vice chair of DA Africa Committee.
“It’s an honor to be elected to this role as DA-EMEA Non-CC Representative. I highly value the significance of DA efforts for GOTV as well as advocacy and activism throughout the political cycle, working to keep politicians back home accountable and responsive to their constituents overseas. My goal is to help DA members in non-CC countries have their voices heard and their participation enhanced.”
As Non-CC DPCA Voting Representative, Becca and her three Non-CC colleagues from AP and Americas will join the 265 other voting representatives who over the next months will vote on amendments to the DA Charter, proposed DA resolutions, the 2024 Delegate Selection Plan, and, finally, to elect the DA International Executive Committee. Thank you for your service Becca!

Let's get GILTI Tax relief into legislation this year. Congress needs data on Americans abroad who have small businesses hit by GILTI Tax. If you are an American living abroad with a small to medium size business registered as a company in the country you live in please click here to do this GILTI Tax survey. Thank you!
