    Support Democrats Abroad's Global Campaign to

    "Get Out the Vote"

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

    Global Pub Quiz Fun(draiser)

    Online-DAGlobalPubQuiz-NL.jpeg

    We're looking forward to meeting your team -- or matching you with other Democrats around the world.

    For each round we'll send out a google form for you to fill in the answers. Volunteers will grade each round and the winning team(s) will receive never-ending fame and fortune.*

    Ninety percent of the funds raised from this event will go directly to GOTV. Did you know that just $5 USD can reach 125 voters?

    The other ten percent will go to DA's travel fund. As a young-ish volunteer without disposable income I can tell you the #1 issue with getting involved at a higher level of commitment is being unable to afford to travel to the regional and global meetings. It's important to show up in person as it helps build relationships we need to keep up the good work. We want to have a big tent party and that perhaps means helping our younger or income-sensitive volunteers to be part of the organization. 

    Date: Saturday May 30th  |  Where: RSVP for ZOOM link!
    Quiz Start: 7:30pm (CEST / Paris time)

    For any questions about Democrats Abroad Pub Quiz, please contact DANL's Andrew Tucker: [email protected]

    You can help by making a donation for this great event, so reserve your place as soon as possible!
