Irish National Caucus

THE IRISH LOBBY
The Irish National Caucus (INC) is the Irish lobby on Capitol Hill, Washington, DC. It is a human rights organization dedicated to getting the United States to stand up for justice and peace in Ireland.

NONPROFIT
The Irish National Caucus is a nonprofit organization(registered in Washington, D.C., 1978). It is a 501(c)(4). The INC’s sister organization, the Irish Peace Foundation, is recognized by the I.R.S. as being eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3)

NONVIOLENT
The Irish National Caucus is nonviolent, nonpartisan and nonsectarian. It has no foreign principal and does support , morally or financially, any group or party in any part of Ireland. It does not send money to Ireland. All its funds are raised and spent in the United States.

HISTORIC VISION
The Irish National Caucus was the first Irish organization in history to open and maintain headquarters on Capitol Hill to lobby for justice and peace in Ireland. That fact alone tells you a lot about the vision and purpose of the Irish National Caucus - not to mention its determination and ability.
