The report shows the many ways our diplomats connected with Americans from all 50 states, including by sharing their experiences, discussing how domestic and foreign policies are inextricably linked, and clarifying how the Department’s work contributes to peace, stability, and prosperity both around the world and at home in the United States.  With outreach through people-to-people events and programs, the Department connects with civil society groups, the private sector, state and local governments, community organizations, and students, among other groups – not only raising awareness about the Department’s work, but also gathering diverse perspectives that directly shape it.
