On March 25th, Democrats Abroad Netherlands will be holding elections to elect new officers. These are positions of leadership, and can help determine the priorities of Democrats Abroad, the issues and platform ideas that get support and help determine party rules.
Certain positions also have Democratic Party Committee Abroad (DPCA) voting rights, and will be able to vote for new international officers.
We need progressives to vote and to run for every position so we can transform Democrats Abroad to truly represent the membership.
