Civil Society Education

U.S.-based international NGOs often find that policies meant to advance American interests have unintended consequences that impede principled humanitarian action, development initiatives, and peacebuilding programs.

To protect civil society operating space, InterAction educates Congress, U.S. agencies, and multilateral bodies on the need for policy reforms. Our recommended policy changes are informed by consultations with our coalition, meaning that InterAction’s seat at the table allows our Members’ voices—and those that they serve—to be heard.

At the same time, InterAction educates Member organizations on policy and legislation changes that affect their operations, sharing informational resources and spaces for dialogue.
