we are

Learn more about who we are and how we serve our mission.

Global Americans is an independent, nonpartisan think tank committed to providing valuable research and analysis for government officials, business executives, journalists, academics, and others interested in Latin America and the Caribbean. Our mission is to contribute towards a deeper understanding of how public and business policy decisions in the U.S., Latin America, the Caribbean and elsewhere impact each other and the region.


Founded in 2015, Global Americans operates from New York City and Washington, DC, and provides content virtually to remain accessible for leaders, thinkers, and other stakeholders across the Western Hemisphere. It is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, funded through non-governmental sponsorship and individual donations. This independent funding allows Global Americans to remain strictly nonpartisan, and the organization takes no institutional positions on matters of policy.  

How we serve our mission


We offer application-oriented and fact-based analyses of U.S. foreign policy toward Latin America


We contextualize state-to-state interactions within a regional and global framework


We publish “The Weekly News Brief,” the only newsletter that analyzes Latin American news and markets along with relevant U.S. Congressional developments 


We convene high-level gatherings where senior government officials, members of Congress, regional leaders, and prominent thinkers come together to discuss and debate major Western Hemisphere issues


We support a Fellows Program that fosters independent research, enabling Global Americans Fellows to produce articles, reports, and books and hold roundtables that analyze policy issues and make concrete recommendations


We provide up-to-date research and analysis about Latin American policy on our website, globalamericans.org
