Department of State Launches State-to-States Initiative

Special Representative for City and State Diplomacy Ambassador Nina Hachigian announced the State-to-States Initiative, a new effort by the Department of State to connect with states and local communities in the U.S.

The State-to-States Initiative pulls together existing and new engagement conducted by the Special Representative for City and State Diplomacy and her team. They meet with local leaders, diaspora communities, nonprofit organizations, and academic institutions in their communities to know them better, learn their perspectives on local priorities, and hear how global issues affect them.

The Special Representative for City and State Diplomacy Ambassador Nina Hachigian, serves as the State Department’s “chief connector” with towns, cities, counties and states.  Established in 2022, the Special Representative and her team aim to bring the benefits of U.S. foreign policy — jobs, investments, connections, international experiences — to local communities while supporting the integration of local ideas and action into U.S. international engagement strategy.
