THO is deeply committed to broadening and deepening the partnership between the United States and Turkey through dialogue and engagement that spans an extensive range of government, private and non-profit sectors.
The Turkish Heritage Organization (THO) has begun a Congressional outreach initiative. This venture aims at introducing THO to Congressional offices as THO intends to be a resource for information on U.S.-Turkey relations. Through events, publications, and the THO Advisory Board, THO can be a valuable tool for policy makers.
Thus far, THO has met with Representatives and Senators spanning from Nevada to South Carolina. Primarily, THO has focused on the Members of the Caucus on U.S.-Turkey Relations & Turkish Americans, The Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs; however, THO looks forward to meeting all members of Congress in various capacities.
Over the long term, THO is preparing to arrange various types of events on the Hill to promote discussion and dialogue around Turkey’s role in the international community and issues of importance in the U.S.-Turkey bilateral relationship.
