With a strong and growing coalition in Tennessee for more than 5 years, the USGLC works to educate and engage policymakers and community leaders on why investments in development and diplomacy help keep America safe and strengthen Tennessee’s economy.

The USGLC’s Tennessee Advisory Committee brings together more than 140 business, faith, non-profit, and political leaders who understand how American global leadership matters for Tennessee. We’re also proud of Tennessee’s Veterans for Smart Power – part of a nationwide network of 30,000 veterans.
