Today, the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Global Public Affairs released “Engaging at Home: Foreign Policy for the American People,” the inaugural report on the Bureau’s efforts in 2023 to engage with Americans on the ways in which our diplomacy and foreign policy impacts their lives here.
The report shows the many ways our diplomats connected with Americans from all 50 states, including by sharing their experiences, discussing how domestic and foreign policies are inextricably linked, and clarifying how the Department’s work contributes to peace, stability, and prosperity both around the world and at home in the United States. With outreach through people-to-people events and programs, the Department connects with civil society groups, the private sector, state and local governments, community organizations, and students, among other groups – not only raising awareness about the Department’s work, but also gathering diverse perspectives that directly shape it.
By sharing this report, the Department seeks to raise awareness of how Americans can engage with and learn about diplomacy while also furthering our commitment to transparency and accountability. By connecting with diverse groups of people from around the United States, we are seeking to fulfill our mission to serve all Americans.
