It’s time to create some Democratic Mojo in 2022! We will be holding our first in-person conference since 2019 in Guadalajara from March 11th - 13th, and all members of Democrats Abroad are invited to attend.
It’s imperative that we provide a combined effort in order to maintain a Democrat majority in the midterms. It’s going to require us to work together nationwide like never before, keeping our eyes set on one main goal: getting each and every US voter in Mexico to vote.
We are thrilled to have a special guest, Democrats Abroad International Chair, Candice Kerestan from Germany speaking. We have a full slate of offerings and look forward to seeing you in Guadalajara!

Biden-Harris Progress Report #8: Taking Care of Unfinished Business!
In July of 2020, presidential nominee, Joe Biden, and Senator Bernie Sanders announced their Unity Task Force recommendations for a Democratic presidency. Their bold plans to address the pressing needs of working-class families, combat climate change, and much more helped us win the presidency and Senate majority, as well as hold the House majority. We entered 2021 with high expectations!
As we begin 2022, many of our expectations remain unfulfilled. The scope of the Build Back Better Act has narrowed dramatically, remaining two votes short of passage. Existing filibuster rules stand in the way of passing the Freedom to Vote Act and John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. Delivering victories for all three of these and more is crucial to millions of us and for Democratic electoral success in the midterms.
Join members of proDA to learn about and discuss the negotiations for all three bills, the prospects for their passage, and the consequences of further delay. We will advocate for action, urging all of us to intensify our efforts. Time is very short and so, too, is the patience of those whose needs are not being met!
WHEN: Saturday, January 22nd, at 9-10:30am ET, 3-4:30pm Berlin time, 7:30-9:00 New Delhi time, 10-11:30pm Beijing time
WHERE: Zoom–Please RSVP for the link.

Scared to Debt!
Film Screening & Panel Discussion with Filmmaker
[Note: film can be viewed anytime between January 27th-31st!]
Currently, 45 million borrowers are saddled with close to $1.9 trillion in federal student loan debt in the United States. The Biden Administration has extended the CARES ACT payment pause until May 1st, 2022. Many borrowers perceive the decision as kicking the can down the road. They remain victims of predatory loan practices within a corrupt system that profits while increasing their debt far beyond their ability to pay it.
View the award-winning Sallie Mae Not documentary, episode one of the Scared to Debt documentary film by Michael Camoin, and join him and others for a panel discussion to learn the chilling reality of student loan corruption in America and options to confront it effectively.
- Michael J. Camoin, Filmmaker: Scared to Debt: America's Student Loan Scam
- Alan Collinge, Founder: StudentLoanJustice.Org
- Reggie Harris: American singer/songwriter (pending)

Democrats Abroad Guadalajara gives a hearty thanks to everyone who participated in our February 6th fundraiser. Your generous support will go a long way in helping us with our mission to Get Out the Vote to the more than 1.5 million U.S. citizens living in Mexico! Special thanks to our fundraising chair, Michaele Rivera, who organized a lovely evening in the home of Eva Petocz and José Maria Rancaño. Thank you, Eva and José for the use of your beautiful home! Dax, French cuisine, provided delicious appetizers accompanied by their elegant service. Their restaurant can be found on Ave. Rúben Darío 293. Check them out! And, we want to give a shout out to the musical duet, "Sambless" who provided us with beautiful tunes from the Americas. Thank you, Jessica and Orlando! For those of you who donated and attended, we not only raised money to help with this year´s expenses in promoting the right to vote from abroad, but also saw our community mobilizing for the hard work ahead. Let´s continue to get the word out that we are looking for your active participation in all of our upcoming efforts. Visit www.democratsabroad.org to learn more about how you can help. Even a few hours a month of active participation will go a long ways to getting a Democrat elected in the November 2020 elections!
