|Turkish American Political Activism
Turkish American political activism was transformed in 2007 with the establishment of Turkish American political action committees under the “Ten Thousand Turks Campaign,” www.tenthousandturks.org.
Five Turkish American political action committees (PACs) across the United States now support the strong and steadfast friendship between the United States and Turkey grounded in shared values and common strategic goals.
The five PACs are: Turkish Coalition USA PAC (TC-USA PAC), TC-Northeast PAC, TC-California PAC, TC-Midwest PAC, and TURKISH PAC/Texas.
The PACs are independent, non-partisan, nonconnected entities and are not affiliated with any political party, candidate, religious movement, or charity. They are regulated by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and make periodic public filings as required by law.
The PACs support Democratic, Republican, and Independent candidates who believe in the importance of a strong U.S.-Turkey relationship and balanced dialogue on issues of importance to Turkish Americans. The PACs are funded entirely by American citizens and permanent residents (green card holders).
