CARE advocate joins USGLC breakfast with AZ Rep. David Schweikert
The United States Global Leadership Coalition (USGLC) works to strengthen America's civilian led tools- development and diplomacy- alongside our defense. Like CARE, they advocate for a strong International Affairs Budget, to make America’s international affairs programs a keystone of U.S. foreign policy. In their coalition they have members from the non-profit and humanitarian sectors. As a CARE advocate I was invited to USGLC's breakfast event in Arizona with Congressman David Schweikert on March 28, 2018. Also attending and sharing their expertise was Lieutenant General John F. Regni. It was clear in the conversation was that the Congressman supports U.S. global engagement, and foreign aid is a key component. He mentioned to me he was aware of the great work CARE is doing and complimented this work. He feels the U.S. foreign affairs budget will build infrastructures and systems connecting the world we can trade with. Schweikert said, "It is important we lead on this. It's happening with or without us" when speaking on trade relations and supporting global stability, then commented that "we should stop thinking of a closed economy". What was made clear from the Lt. General and the Congressman is that using aid and diplomacy is a pillar for ensuring a stable and thriving future for us all.
