Chair

I believe that our party needs to represent the people it serves and that it must be more inclusive. Public service is my biggest passion, for, how can one complain without putting forward the smallest amount of effort? . I want to help build a truly inclusive Democratic Party that captures the voices that represent the diversity of America. Pressing to make sure the voices of Americans Abroad are heard and included creating a truly unified party. We must not shun change, nor lack in inclusion, nor falter on platform. United we must resist and persist.

  • Forest Bathing in Amsterdamse Bos for DA

    The mid-term election season is fraught with anticipation, worry, excitement and hope. With so much to do in our personal and political lives, it is easy to lose touch with our inner calm and the outer landscape of beauty that surrounds us.

    This special forest bathing (shinrin yoku) morning is planned especially for Democrats Abroad for a chance to (re)connect with nature and replenish our energy to continue the work we are called to do.

    For a couple of hours, you are invited to experience the Amsterdamse Bos in a gentle, contemplative way. There will be a short hike at the beginning and end but very little physical activity overall, with plenty of time to just sit and be.

    A good portion of our time together will be in silence. This offers you the opportunity to experience the forest and to connect with others who want to experience nature fully and deeply. By choosing to stay away from friendly chit-chat and explore what it’s like to walk in nature without speaking, we have a chance to engage our senses more fully and to truly connect with the natural world.

    • Be Prepared
    Dress comfortably for walking on natural terrains. Bring a water bottle, but little else so you are unencumbered for your walk. Participants will be asked to silence and pocket their phones, so let folks know you will be unavailable for a couple of hours.

    All participants of Wildwood Wisdom activities are personally responsible for their own fitness, safety and welfare and must be equipped accordingly.

    • Meeting Place
    Parking on the corner near the Europarc’s Amsterdamse Bos campground. Kleine Noorddijk 1
    1187 NZ Amstelveen. There is also bus stop on that corner.

    Please visit https://9292.nl/ for public transportation to the campground.

    • Meeting Time
    We will leave the parking lot at 11:00 sharp and we finish around 13:30.

    In the event of cancellation due to severe weather, participants will be notified by 8 a.m. the day of the event.

    The cost is €22 per person – all proceeds will be donated to Democrats Abroad.

    Space is limited to 20 participants.

    *Kimberly Knight is a U.S. citizen residing in the Netherlands.

    Help DA Update Its Website!

    $20,206.88 raised
    GOAL: $30,000.00

    Having a strong digital presence will be more important than ever for finding and mobilizing voters abroad for critical races in 2022. That’s why Democrats Abroad has prioritized redesigning its website (www.democratsabroad.org) in Spring 2022.

    At the top of the to-do list is making our website more engaging, accessible, and user-friendly -- something we know needs to be done, but which comes with a price tag of $30,000. Please help us in this longer-term investment so that we can better attract and support our online visitors -- and in turn convert site visits into activism and votes.
