Vote for Powen

Hi, I'm running for Democrats Abroad Germany Treasurer & DPCA Voting Representative

Dear fellow members of Democrats Abroad Germany,

I’ve been living in Berlin and active in Democrats Abroad since 2014. During that time, I’ve held leadership roles on the local, national, and international levels.

  • Berlin Chapter Board (Media & Communications officer): 2015-2021

  • Germany DPCA voting representative: 2019-2021

  • Global AAPI Caucus steering committee: Since 2020


I’ve helped grow the Berlin chapter, organizing meetings, fundraisers, and all kinds of events, in addition to my press outreach and communications work. I’m proud of what I accomplished, reaching new U.S. voters and keeping 5000+ members engaged through email, social media, and both websites.


As a voting representative for Germany and an active Executive Committee member, I introduced and rolled out new digital tools to help us work together better.


I’m a founding member of the global Asian American & Pacific Islander Caucus, where I serve on the steering committee, communications working group, and global IT liaison.

Inclusive Organizing

Since I first started organizing for racial justice and LGBTQ rights in college, I have always strived to put my politics in my practice. I always think about

  • how to include more people in progressive movements,

  • how organizational structures can better serve our values, and

  • how to improve transparency and lower barriers to participation.

What does this mean? I can grasp complex topics, break them down, and communicate clearly, from Federal Election Commission rules to party platform processes. As Treasurer and Voting Representative. I’ll work with members, voters, and volunteers, whether they bring decades of experience or are just getting involved.

Let’s build a long-term, sustainable Democrats Abroad Germany. I’m excited to be part of that project, and ask for your vote and support.

Questions? Want to learn more about me? I’d love to hear from you:


I've had the chance to work with many different people in Democrats Abroad over the past few years. Here are their letters of support!

How to vote?

To vote for me and other Germany leadership, you'll need to register for Democrats Abroad Germany's online Annual General Meeting on Saturday, March 20, 2021.
