ACA advocating in Washington, DC

US Capitol

Educating and Advocating to Congress and the Administration

ACA’s headquartered offices are Washington, DC-based allowing the organization access to advocate directly with legislators on Capitol Hill on a regular basis.

ACA is ideally suited to the job because we are non-partisan and represent an independent voice on subjects affecting US citizens living and working abroad.ACA is respected in Congress for bringing solutions to problems that are in the best interests of the community without political bias. ACA has a dedicated presence in Washington, DC - a team of professionals available to the Congress and Administration. We are literally an Uber ride away from key offices in Congress.

ACA educates Members and their staff on the issues affecting US citizens living and working abroad. ACA works with the members of the Americans Abroad Caucus.

ACA maintains ongoing contacts with key legislative offices such as:

  • Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT)
  • Medicare Administration
  • Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
  • Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS)
  • House Ways & Means Committee
  • Senate Finance Committee
  • Social Security Administration (SSA)
  • Government Accountability Office (GAO)
  • US State Department
  • US Treasury Department

These offices regularly reach out to ACA for input on the problems and concerns of the community of Americans overseas.  As part of our work, ACA partners with the US Vote Foundation and other organizations and stakeholders on issues of common interest. 

Information about our current and past advocacy campaigns is available in the Advocacy section; you can view all of our submissions to Congress and key legislative offices on the Submissions page.
