Mission & History
The Libyan American Alliance was founded as a culmination of the work of many other Libyan American advocacy groups that support Libya’s path towards democracy and the rule of law since the beginning of the Libyan February 17th uprising. LAA works to support the mission of preserving and implementing the ideals of that uprising by fostering democracy, rule of law, freedom, free press, good governance, transparency, inclusion and equitable distribution of resources through partnerships with American institutions, civil society leaders, policy makers and researchers. The Libyan American Alliance is a continued partnership between the Libyan people and the American people, led by the Libyan American community.
We work with grassroots organizations that support the work of thousands of Libyan Americans in several major US cities and we build bridges of friendships and cooperation between the peoples of Libya and the United States. With a central office in Washington DC, we have been active in engaging policy makers and members of the Washington DC circles working on Libya matters since the early days of the onset of the Libyan revolution. This work continues today and involves a long list of ongoing projects and successful milestones both in metropolitan Washington DC and beyond.
Some our former and current partners are the Libyan American Public Affairs Council (LAPAC), Libyan Americans for Human Rights (LAHR), Center for Libyan American Strategic Studies (CLASS), Libyan Emergency Task Force (LETF), American Libyan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ALCCI), Value Life Foundation (VLF), Libyan Council of North America (LCNA) and many others.
We strive to be a leading Libyan American advocate of democracy and rule of law in Libya through a robust partnership with the United States of America.
