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

The USGLC’s Washington Advisory Committee brings together more than 110 business, faith, non-profit, and political leaders who understand how American global leadership matters for Washington. We’re also proud of Washington’s Veterans for Smart Power – part of a nationwide network of 30,000 veterans.
