AARO in Washington!
AARO works actively to educate Congress, federal agencies, the media and the public on such vital topics as taxation, absentee voting, citizenship, representation, Social Security and Medicare.
Its consultant in Washington provides timely information on upcoming legislation and political trends.
AARO also coordinates and cooperates actively with Republicans Abroad and Democrats Abroad in lobbying, since our issues are non-partisan and affect all Americans abroad.
From its Paris headquarters, AARO regularly contacts key members of Congress and government agencies to present its positions. It also alerts its members throughout the world about legislation that affects overseas Americans and urges them to write to their Congressional representatives in support of these positions. In Washington, AARO delegates join their coalition partners during the annual Overseas Americans Week to meet directly with officials concerned with its issues.
