Our Work

The World Affairs Council of Tacoma is a non-profit, non-partisan organization whose mission is to promote public understanding of world affairs and to enhance the ability of its members to engage in a global community.  We feature guest speakers such as diplomats, academics, business professionals, and journalists.  Speakers provide the opportunity for participants to engage in meaningful discussions about world affairs. 

Join Us

We create and promote activities to enhance public awareness and interest in international, cultural, economic, and political issues -- especially those with relevance to the greater Tacoma community. We provide insight into the world today through special guest speakers, travel programs, and unique networking events.  Click below for details on WACT Memberships.
