Americans Helping Americans Abroad

AARO's purpose is to create and maintain ties among American citizens located in, and/or residents of countries other than, the United States, with no regard for their political preferences or party affiliations, in order to:

  • Unite overseas Americans' efforts to promote, assert, obtain and safeguard their social, civil and fiscal rights under U.S. law;
  • Undertake any actions, through all legal means, regarding the recognition of those rights of which they may find themselves deprived due to their absence from the United States;
  • Help Americans resident abroad; and
  • Educate and inform (i) overseas Americans of their rights and responsibilities as American citizens and (ii) the American Federal and state governments about the issues affecting Americans overseas and the inequities regarding their fiscal and civil rights.
