About Global Heritage Alliance 

Global Heritage Alliance is a Washington, DC-based advocacy organization, led by well-respected figures from the art, antiquities, and political worlds. GHA calls for a balanced U.S. government approach to cultural policy based on American values. Global and international access to art are in the public interest. U.S. cultural life is enhanced by the lawful international exchange of art and antiquities; of which museums, scholars, private collectors, dealers, and auction houses play an instrumental role. GHA advocates for recognition of religious and cultural rights in U.S. foreign policy. We support the protection of private property of American citizens, businesses and museums as well as that of religious and ethnic minorities across the globe. We make clear the facts necessary to good U.S. policy on the arts and the harms of foreign government confiscation by lawless and rogue regimes. Working together with religious and ethnic minorities and public interest organizations, we educate legislators, government agencies and the U.S. public.
