With a strong and growing coalition in Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin’s economy.

The USGLC’s Wisconsin Advisory Committee brings together more than 120 business, faith, non-profit, and political leaders who understand how American global leadership matters for Wisconsin. We’re also proud of Wisconsin’s Veterans for Smart Power – part of a nationwide network of 30,000 veterans.
