Democrats Abroad Thailand (DAT) is the official country committee for US Democrats living in Thailand. We provide opportunities for Americans in Thailand to get involved in the Democratic party and issues that matter to them. These are trying times and it will take all of us to fight back. US citizens around the world are organizing for a fairer and more just America that embraces diversity- let's raise our voices together and be heard all the way from Thailand.
We support our great Democratic candidates and encourage discussion about the ideas and solutions they offer through debate watch parties, post-debate discussions, live chats with the candidates. We host political pub nights to get your political banter on, Ladies Night, issue based call-congress parties, film nights,
If you are specifically interested in racial justice, gender equality and/ or LGBTQ rights - join one or all of our Caucuses here on the website and then follow us on FB : Black Caucus and Women's Caucus.
We have three official chapters, in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and the North, and Pattaya and the Eastern Seaboard. We are always looking to grow our chapter network so if you are interested in organizing for social justice- let me know!
I look forward to welcoming you at the next DAT event.
Chair, Democrats Abroad Thailand
This June, members and leadership from around the country gathered in Bangkok for the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to elect the Executive Committee for Democrats Abroad Thailand. The AGM is always a great opportunity for active members from around the country to meet face to face to discuss strategy and re-energize for the year. Heartfelt farewells and thank yous went out to Phil Robertson, the outgoing Chair for a job well done, and those present welcomed Paul Risley into the position. Paul is a long time member of DAT and has served in various roles in the organization over the years. He will be supported by 3 Vice Chairs: Gary Suwannarat, Rick Graves and Russel Berman.
Newly elected executive committee members for 2019/ 2020:
Paul Risley, Meghan Driscoll and Rosalia Gitau
