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

The USGLC’s Texas Advisory Committee brings together more than 170 business, faith, non-profit, and political leaders who understand how American global leadership matters for Texas. We’re also proud of Texas’s Veterans for Smart Power – part of a nationwide network of 30,000 veterans.

Hon. Henry Cisneros

U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (1993-1997) and Mayor of San Antonio (1981-1989)
