Organiser

Democrats Abroad Ireland

Democrats Abroad Ireland are a diverse group of US citizens from many backgrounds - American-born, Irish returned emigrants from the US, and people from elsewhere - working towards the election of Democratic candidates. 

We engage in voter registration, fundraising, phone-banking, and other strategies to strengthen the Democratic party.  We meet monthly to plan, encourage voter registration, and discuss topics of the day.  And we have quite a bit of fun along the way too.  

If you are an American citizen, you're welcome to join us! First - register to vote at www.votefromabroad.org, and second - join Democrats Abroad!
