Our Organization

Like a number of advocacy groups in the U.S., Citizens for Global Solutions is composed of two distinct yet closely related non-profit corporate entities: Citizens for Global Solutions Education Fund and Citizens for Global Solutions Action Network.

In the past the Action Network was very engaged in a number of political activities and worked hard to inform and lobby congress on issues related to global cooperation and democratic international institutions. Due to current priorities, the two boards of the organization have decided to focus on our public educational programs rather than on political activities. However, we continue to accept membership in the Action Network. Members of the Action Network are invited to the annual members meeting and elect their board of directors.
