U.S Global Leadership Coalition State Leaders Summit
In early June 2017, our director, Mark Poeppelman, attended the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition (USGLC) Summit in Washington, D.C! At the summit, NGO and business leaders from all over the country spoke about the importance of strengthening the United State's moral leadership and diplomatic relations. A few key speakers included Senator Tim Kaine, Secretary of Treasury Jacob Lew, Congressman Don Bacon, Congressman Tom Emmer, and Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal! Within the course of two days, topics such as national security, economic engagement, and third-world development were discussed in great detail.
In addition, on the last day of the Summit, Mark had the opportunity to visit capital hill. Along with 500 other participants, Mark advocated to maintain the current federal spending level on international affairs-only 1% of the entire federal budget- in an attempt to curb proposed cuts to the International Affairs Budget.
As an organization that promotes global understanding, CIP encourages you to follow Mark's example! Contacting local congress men and women is a great way to voice your concerns over the future of our international affairs policy.
