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

The USGLC’s Nebraska Advisory Committee brings together more than 90 business, faith, non-profit, and political leaders who understand how American global leadership matters for Nebraska. We’re also proud of Nebraska’s Veterans for Smart Power – part of a nationwide network of 30,000 veterans.
