G7/G20 Advocacy Alliance (U.S.)
The G7/G20 Advocacy Alliance is a group of 40+ InterAction members and allies who work together to influence the annual G7 and G20 summits. The Alliance meets on an as needed basis beginning eight to nine months prior to each summit to select policy issues to advocate on, based on the summit agendas. In recent years, these issues have included anti-corruption and transparency; food security and nutrition; financial transparency and tax fairness; G7/G20 accountability; infrastructure investment; and jobs and employment. Alliance members form policy teams who draft short briefs with three recommendations, which are then used for advocating with the White House, State Department, USAID, Department of the Treasury, and other agencies. The Alliance also has worked on common messaging for media surrounding the summits themselves. Learn more.
