USA*Engage Launches Revamped Website

Monday, 25 June 2012
Washington, DC – USA*Engage, a broad-based coalition of manufacturing, agricultural and services companies, which advocates for the primacy of normal commercial relations, diplomacy and engagement among countries and against unilateral sanctions, today re-launched its website – www.usaengage.org – with a new structure and additional resources. The site was redesigned in an effort to increase the breadth and depth of information on critical policy issues related to U.S. sanctions and diplomatic policy. The refreshed site aims to maximize accessibility and value for policymakers and others interested in learning more about the coalition's advocacy efforts.

The revamped site includes the following features:

  • Sanctions Programs: Features the extensive history and current state of U.S. sanctions programs for the following countries: Cuba, Iran, Libya, Myanmar, North Korea, Sudan and Syria.
     
  • State and Local Sanctions: Highlights information on state and local government sanctions against foreign governments and includes a list of state sanctions enacted or currently pending.
     
  • Alien Tort Statute (ATS): Details the history of the ATS and includes a list of current and recent ATS cases, including a brief summary of the allegations and proceedings and a status update for each case. This section also highlights amicus briefs filed by USA*Engage and the National Foreign Trade Council.
     
  • Pending Sanctions Legislation: Features a list of current legislation pending in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate that would impose additional U.S. unilateral sanctions against Iran, North Korea, Syria and Vietnam.
