    Make "Good Trouble"

    and Save Our Democracy!

    A fundraiser in celebration of the life and work of the late Georgia Congressman and Civil Rights leader, John R. Lewis.

    john_lewis_selma_1965.1c.jpg 

    Democrats Abroad is commemorating Congressman John Lewis with two online screenings of the documentary "John Lewis - Get in the Way" on July 11, various actions days after Congress resumes legislative business, and a Forum on July 17, the one-year anniversary of his passing.

    Often described as the conscience of the Congress, John Lewis was a friend to Democrats Abroad. To raise funds for DA’s GOTV efforts, we ask everyone—whether you attend or not—to donate $19.65—or for those who wish to be a Gold Star Supporter, $80 representing the 80 years of John Lewis’ extraordinary, courageous life.

    Please join Democrats Abroad to honor the memory of John Lewis and carry forward the flame of his dedication to voting rights for all.

  • None of Us Are Equal Until All of Us Are Equal - The ERA for Women is Long-Overdue in the USA!

    I am once again asking Congress to finally add the ERA to the US Constitution! While women won the right to vote in 1920, women still do not have equal rights under the law. And even though the Equal Protection Clause in the 14th Amendment prohibits states from denying any person equal protection under the law, women’s rights are still not explicitly guaranteed. In 1976, around 10,000 marchers in Springfield, Illinois demonstrated for the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. Many of these marchers proudly carried signs advocating, ERA is the American Way! In a Pew Research Center poll last year, almost 80 percent of Americans supported adding the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution. In 2020, Virginia became the 38th and final state needed to ratify the ERA. It is time for Congress to affirm and ensure women’s equality in the US. The US Senate must immediately pass S.J.Res.1 - A joint resolution removing the deadline for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment! Let’s get on with it and join other nations like Canada, which offers women full equal rights guaranteed by law!

    DONATE NOW to help us reach and mobilize New Jersey Democrats Abroad!

    New Jersey currently does not allow all overseas voters to vote in state elections, even though overseas voters could vote in state elections before Chris Christie pushed through a change in the law in 2017.

    Assemblywoman Joann Downey has introduced a bill, NJ A5306, to change the law back--and with your donation you can help get it passed!

    If you're from New Jersey, you can also directly help pass the bill for this campaign as a constituent. Contact your State Senator and urge them to co-sponsor NJ S3761, which restores voting rights for NJ Overseas Voters. You can find contact info and a call script here!

    Kendra Borgen's 2021 Birthday Fundraiser

    Having volunteered in politics since I was a teenager I have found a wonderful home within Democrats Abroad – an all volunteer organization.

    We run on blood, sweat, tears, & donations!

    During my time in Democrats Abroad leadership I’ve noticed how expensive it is to be involved. Going to regional and global meetings is fundamental in getting good work done and is important and instrumental in team building. However, it comes at each individual’s own expense.

    I believe everyone should be able to volunteer at the highest level and want to help keep these meetings accessible to people, who may not be as financially flexible, by fundraising for Democrats Abroad Travel Fund.

    I had hoped to spend my 40th Birthday in an exotic location but luckily I’m in Amsterdam and you can help me celebrate my 40th birthday virtually. Please help me reach my fundraising goal: $2021 in 2021 

    Got $40 for my 40th? – Or even $4, or $400 if you’re so inclined –  hit that donate button.

    Candice-Kerestan-DAG2020.3c.jpg

    As many of you know, Democrats Abroad has been a big part of my life since I moved to Germany seven(!) years ago, and it’s remarkable what the organization has accomplished in that time! This past election cycle, we engaged Americans abroad like never before and delivered decisive votes in races across the United States.

    But as they say, “after the election is before the election”, and it’s important to me that we continue setting up Democrats for success in 2022. As I start this next year of my life, I invite you to join me in making a contribution to Democrats Abroad, an organization near and dear to me.

    Have you ever made a successful change in your life? Perhaps you wanted to exercise more, eat less, or change jobs? Think about the time and attention you dedicated to the process. A lot, right? Change is hard. Creating effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of power, privilege, supremacy, and leadership is like any lifestyle change. Setting our intentions and adjusting what we spend our time doing is essential. It’s all about building new habits. Sometimes the hardest part is just getting started. The good news is, there’s an abundance of resources just waiting to empower you to be a more effective player in the quest for equity and justice.

    About the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge 

    • For 21 days, do one action to further your understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity 
    • This plan includes suggestions for readings, podcasts, videos, observations, and ways to form and deepen community connections. Suggestions are in the following categories:

    Over 9 million Americans live outside of the United States. Democrats Abroad is working to ensure that as many as possible vote in November, and that Democrats win up and down the ballot. 


    We are phoning members, running social media ads, and mailing potential voters in order to win in November.


    And our Get Out the Vote campaigns work. In 2016, the number of Americans abroad who voted was 50% higher than in 2012 and in 2018, the number of voters tripled compared to 2014. And the number of overseas Americans requesting ballots in 2020 is already twice the number in 2016.


    We CAN make the difference, but we need YOUR help. Please make a donation today to fund our Global Get Out the Vote campaign.


    Donations are made to Democrats Abroad (Democratic Party Committee Abroad) and not to any candidate for Federal Office.

  • D4D_Ballot_Week.pngDialing for Democracy is a calling marathon
    and global Democrats Abroad fundraiser.

    To win in November, we need to increase voter participation from abroad, which means making sure that overseas voters receive their ballots by September 19 (date mandated by federal law) and that they are sent back to the United States on time. 

    Given the Trump Administration's relentless attempts to weaken a fundamental pillar of our democracy — voting — we can't take any risks this year when it comes to our ballots. [Mobile device users, please scroll down to donate!]

    Generous sponsors like yourself will help Democrats Abroad reach all members from September 22-24, shortly after ballots have been sent, to confirm that they've received theirs, and inform them on how to promptly return them to their respective voting jurisdictions.

    DONORS: If you are sponsoring a specific caller, BEFORE you select an amount, write the caller's name in the box at left!

    Donate $50 and you’re sponsoring 200 calls! 
    $10—40 calls   $25—100 calls   $100—400 calls 
    $250—1000 calls   $500—2000 calls   $1000—4000 calls

    Democrats Abroad will be making 100,000s of calls this fall, and your contribution will help make this outreach possible.

    Thank you! We appreciate your support!

    Don’t forget to check in on how the calls are going on Facebook Live on September 24 on the DA Germany Facebook page.
