Our Revolution Abroad grew out of the worldwide grassroots efforts to elect Bernie Sanders President. While we weren’t successful in 2016, the movement is continuing to fight for progressive values. With membership in more than 55 countries, we are the defacto progressive movement of Democrats Abroad, representing more than 68% of voters in the 2016 Global Presidential Primary. And we are here to stay. Join us!
Why Join Our Revolution Abroad?
Our Revolution is a US entity, and like most US-based groups, they’re not really set up to deal with those of us who live in places without a ZIP code. It’s also important that we stand and be counted, not only as progressives, but as US citizens who live outside the USA. As a historically unrepresented group, there are issues we feel are important that many in the US don’t worry about — foreign taxation and investment issues are just two. But you should also join Our Revolution — especially for local and state issues. Join now!
It’s Also Important to be a Member of Democrats Abroad
Democrats Abroad, the ‘State’ for those of us who live outside the US, is the only real opportunity we have for directly-elected representation — there’s no Governor’s office, no Congressional seats, not even an elected school board. But Democrats Abroad does have eight elected representatives to the DNC, and that number is based on membership totals. Whether you love or hate the Democratic Party, there is no better way for those of us who live abroad to have an effect than to be active participants. Bernie has often encouraged his supporters to run for office — Democrats Abroad is our vehicle for that.
