Our Mission

“We are dedicated to preserving Lebanon as a beacon of freedom and democracy. Our goals include promoting peace, neutrality, and freedom of religion and speech, while supporting economic liberty and political independence. We aim to strengthen and expand the U.S.- Lebanon relationship to enhance the security of both nations. By educating and guiding decision-makers, we highlight the deep bonds that unite the two countries and address issues important to the Lebanese American community.”

About ONL

Our goal is to forge a robust U.S.-Lebanon alliance by fostering impactful diplomatic relations with pro-U.S.-Lebanon members of Congress. These partnerships will support the development and execution of U.S. foreign policies that protect Lebanon as a strategic ally in the Middle East. We are committed to positioning Lebanon as an autonomous and progressive nation, setting a precedent for democratization and stability in the region.

Guiding Principles

Honesty, Pragmatism, and Meritocracy: advocating for an independent judiciary, administrative reform, and a neutral Lebanon aligned with UN resolutions. We call for electoral reform with international supervision, anti-corruption measures, and equal rights for expatriates. Our vision includes a free economy with social safety nets, compulsory public education, transparent governance, renewable energy infrastructure, and economic self-sufficiency. Key political reforms include term limits for top officials and separation of powers to ensure effective governance.
