This website is dedicated to the Marshall Islanders who reside in the United States.  With the growing number of Marshallese people who choose to emigrate from the Republic of the Marshall Islands [RMI] and immigrate to the U.S., this website can serve to help unite and better coordinate all of the many Marshallese communities scattered throughout the U.S.  The practical advantage of this site will be to act as a Rapid Response venue when a Congressional bill affecting the Marshallese calls for a quick response, or when a COFA-related issue comes up.  Also, with Marshallese scattered in many rural and isolated areas, the website can help to connect the relatively few Marshallese among the other 330 million Americans in order to feel closer to their Marshallese compatriots.
