With a strong and growing coalition in Alabama, the USGLC works to educate and engage policymakers and community leaders on why investments in development and diplomacy help keep America safe and strengthen Alabama’s economy.

The USGLC’s Alabama Advisory Committee brings together more than 70 business, faith, non-profit, and political leaders who understand how American global leadership matters for Alabama. We’re also proud of Alabama’s Veterans for Smart Power – part of a nationwide network of 30,000 veterans.
