The Pacific Council on International Policy promotes global engagement across Los Angeles and California. We believe that everyone has a role to play in global affairs. The Pacific Council builds the capacity of local citizens to become global affairs champions, harnesses the collective power of individuals, businesses, and institutions in our city, and exports LA’s talents to the world on issues where we add value.
The Council is committed to representing and addressing California’s diverse perspectives and challenging all citizens to think critically about global issues. We believe that community awareness, civic participation, and cross-sector partnerships improve local leadership on global issues and lead to better policy outcomes.
The Pacific Council is committed to building the vast potential of the West Coast for impact on global issues, discourse, and policy.
Contributing to a world in which a spirit of internationalism drives global engagement and diverse perspectives inform policy.
