Legislative Affairs

One of the most important missions of the Navy League of the United States is to inform Congress of the need for strong sea services.  Navy League members are committed to supporting the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and U.S.-flag Merchant Marine, and volunteer their time and money to advocating for the sea services.

The Navy League accomplishes this in two ways:  educational events in the nation’s capitol and grassroots outreach across the United States.  Your dues help support Pizza Briefs and Caucus activities, which educate members of Congress and their staffs to the needs of the sea services and provide opportunities for discussion and engagement.  Navy League forums and events like these increase awareness on the needs of a maritime nation. 

In the field and every day, Navy Leaguers carry this same message to their Congressional representation.  During district work periods, Navy Leaguers donate their personal time to brief Representatives and Senators on current sea service priorities.  The Navy League and its members are a trusted source of information on the needs of the sea services, the most pressing issues in our national security environment, and policy recommendations updated annually in our Maritime Policy Statement.

Make your voice heard—if you’re a Navy Leaguer or a supporter of the sea services, they need you to speak up for them on Capitol Hill.  From this section of the website, you can learn about grassroots training, find sea service veterans in Congress, take action on sequestration, and write your members on many important issues.  Our engagement website, available here, has a number of pre-drafted letters for you to edit and send with just a few clicks.  If you want to learn more about legislative affairs or want to bring attention to a new issue, email the legislative affairs staff at sfuentes@navyleague.org or cbennett@navyleague.org.
