Advocate, Educate and Inform.


ACA addresses some of the most complex legislative and regulatory issues that affect US citizens when living and working abroad and works to provide pragmatic solutions.  ACA does this through advocacy, education, and research on behalf of the 9 million Americans living and working abroad(US State Department Chart of Statistics). With an over 40 year nonpartisan track record, ACA is ideally positioned to bring attention to the issues and drive real change. 

Our Goals:

Educate: Draw attention to issues caused by and the consequences of US policy and regulations. 

Advocate: Provide pragmatic solutions to US policy and regulatory issues based on our experience and  access to Congress and stakeholders in Washington, DC

Inform: Provide resources to the community to help them manage their lives while living and working overseas.
