Foreign Policy for America is launching a new conversation about the ways foreign policy affects people’s lives. FP4A works with local organizations to hold discussion events featuring leading foreign policy specialists and local leaders through events at town halls, Rotary clubs, union halls, universities, religious establishments, and private homes, and aim to promote learning and understanding on both sides.
Foreign Policy for America is building a community of members who share a common commitment to progressive American foreign policy. They partner with local leaders to sustain and expand local conversations, and offer regular opportunities for members to take part in community-wide actions. Through training, toolkits, and national calls to action, Foreign Policy for America equips its members to make their voices heard on critical issues.
The FP4America Action Network supports its members to organize impactful election-related activities such as phone banks, canvassing, and fundraising to support progressive foreign policy champions, both in Washington and cities across the country.
