About APAC

  • The American Polish Advisory Council is a Washington, DC based, bipartisan organization whose mission is to represent the political interest of the Polish American community in Washington and beyond and to mobilize our community to play a greater role in municipal, state and national politics.

    Our 501 (c) (4) status allows us to lobby and support specific legislation that represents the interests of Polish Americans such as initiatives being undertaken in the US Congress that would pave the way for Poland’s entry into the Visa Waiver Program.

    The American Advisory Council is committed to building relationships and facilitating access to key policy makers and fostering dialogue that helps achieve tangible results.

    We invite you to learn about our programs and initiatives and become a part of our efforts to build a stronger Polish American community with a more prominent presence in the political arena.
