Promoting American Workers Since 1999!

When we first began promoting the Buy American Made Campaign in 1999, our theme was Buy American Made Products and Support American Workers. Over the years we gained the support of radio programs, newspapers and television programs as well as countless organizations and tens-of-thousands of individuals who helped promote the Buy American Made Campaign. Because the campaign became a priority for many people, American workers benefited, along with young people who have begun entering the job market with essential job skills.

On Monday, January 25, 2021, President Biden signed an executive order promoting government contracts utilizing American goods and services.

This is a welcome initiative because it strengthens our message to support American workers and the businesses that employ them. The President’s executive order directs federal government purchasing departments to spend tax dollars on American Made goods. It also closes loopholes that allowed companies to move jobs and production offshore, a practice which has been hurting American workers for forty years. The President's order will also update U.S. government purchasing guidelines for the first time since 1954. Hopefully, this action at the federal level will inspire state and local governments to implement similar policies.

Kindly encourage your family and friends to support American made because American workers need the support of America’s consumers so that more of the items we purchase will be made in the United States of America.

Your participation is very important. Kindly spread the word.
