    DAUK Online Annual General Meeting

    Join us to find out about Democrats Abroad United Kingdom's plans for 2020, and how you can help get Trump out of office and elect Democrats across America this November. This event will be held online.

    This annual meeting is an opportunity for DAUK members all across the country to learn more about key races, our 2020 strategy, and how you can play a part in getting Democrats elected up and down the ballot. There will be a special focus on our chapters and regions throughout the UK, and a look at critical down-ballot seats in the Senate and elsewhere.

    All DAUK members are welcome. Admission is free, but your donation to further DAUK's get out the vote activities in 2020 is very welcome. Registered attendees will be emailed a link to the online meeting prior to May 24.

    Please register for the meeting here.

    Joining details will be sent closer to the meeting date. Please note this event is closed to the press.

    Zoom in Online, United Kingdom

    DAUK Virtual Student Social

    What will student life and advocacy look like next year? With the move to online classes, how can we engage with other democrats abroad, and mobilize our peers to vote in November?

    Come join students from across the UK in an informal discussion on life during COVID-19. Let’s talk about the impact of a disrupted spring term, and brainstorm what virtual events/activities we’d like to see from DAUK in the upcoming months. We will also begin to strategize about the role we can play in increasing voting among overseas Americans in the fall.

    Please register here by May 25th and Democrats Abroad UK members will be sent the Zoom link via email the morning of the event.


    News

    Outside London? We Want to Hear from You!

    Ahead of the Global Presidential Primary in March 2020, we'd like to build a community of DA members throughout the country, so that when the time comes for us to vote, we're ready and mobilized. Already we've heard from members in Berkshire, South Wales, and the Cotswolds. We're working to put together groups in these areas. We'll help you to provide organizing support from our Voter Registration and GOTV teams and explain the Global Presidential Primary in detail. Email vice-chair@democratsabroad.org.uk for more information.
