Mobilizing Americans to advocate for the enduring U.S. – Europe partnership
US-Europe Alliance (USEA) is a bipartisan American organization educating and mobilizing Americans to advocate for the enduring partnership between the U.S. and Europe. USEA is the voice of Americans who recognize that their interests lie in a strong transatlantic alliance. Established in 2019 USEA is a non-profit 501(c) (4) organization.
The 21st Century will be defined by either the free world, sustained for over a century by the United States and our European allies, or the autocratic leaders of unfree nations increasingly led by China. The ties that bind the transatlantic community are born of our shared interests and values. All Americans, regardless of ethnic heritage, benefit from the US-Europe Alliance. American made safer and more prosperous through transatlantic trade and investment and as a NATO leader. Now is the time to fortify this partnership with new energy and united purpose. Yet, not all segments of the
American population – especially those of non-European heritage – are effectively included in the broader transatlantic conversation. It is only together that we can successfully shape a free, just, and rules-based world.
Through over a century of conflicts, rebuilding, and progress, Americans and Europeans have endeavored hand-in-hand to meet multiple threats to our freedoms and way of life. We are now facing new challenges. The strategic cooperation of the last century cannot be taken for granted. USEA gives voice to the American commitment to our shared democratic values. To ensure our common bonds are sustained through the rigors of the coming decades, USEA fulfills a unique role in the American dialogue about relations with Europe. Through targeted and sustained effort, including our Transatlantic Chats virtual series, USEA gets Americans talking about the importance of the relationship with Europe, including voices from youth and communities of non-European heritage. Over 90% of those who attended a USEA event in 2020 reported that it improved their understanding of the value of the transatlantic relationship and increased their interest to learn more. By increasing understanding about Europe among the American public USEA fosters dialogue with US policymakers, thereby better enabling them to prioritize and support the enduring US-Europe partnership.
