Overseas Americans Week
A week of "door-knocking" in Washington
11 to 15 February 2013

Overseas Americans Week is an annual program now in its twelth year.  It embodies the commitment of overseas Americans organizations to maintaining an ongoing and current dialogue with legislators and agencies who directly affect the lives of US citizens around the world.

The 2013 Overseas Americans Week program is organized by the following overseas American action groups:
