Tom Perez spoke with Democrats Abroad last week at a reception in London, UK. We were delighted to be able to meet with Chairman Perez, and were also able to fundraise for our Global Study Abroad outreach project, helping our country committees reach the tremendous numbers of students studying abroad this fall and help them to vote. If you'd like to volunteer, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
