Pee-Wee is psyched for the tour of the new AAM site!

Come along as we take a look at AAM’s new online digs.

The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) has a new website – and this version comes with a few new bells and whistles. Join me, your designated tour guide, as we take a look around AAM’s new online digs. Please keep all hands and feet inside the vehicle until the ride is over.

First stop: The jobs meter.

AAM closely tracks the number of manufacturing jobs the U.S. economy has created, ever since President Obama pledged to help create 1 million new ones during his second term. We call it the AAMeter, and it’ll let you know exactly how far we’ve come – and how far have to go to reach the president’s goal. Find it on the front page of our website, or at its home base on the jobs page.

Second stop: Made in America.

Right up top in our website’s navigation bar is a link to AAM’s Made in America page, wherein you’ll find resources to how you can Buy American at the checkout aisle. Looking for info on anything from American-made blue jeans to your next car purchase? We’ve got you covered here.

Third stop: The issues.

Creating American manufacturing jobs is a big part of what we do, but it’s not all we’re focused on. From this page, you can get deeper into the nitty gritty on topics such as trade enforcement, Buy America procurement, and infrastructure policy.

Fourth stop: The blog.

What’s AAM talking about, day to day? Here’s where you’ll find our most current updates on everything from Made in the USA fashion to deep dives into policy debates.

Fifth stop: Get local.

Want to know what kind of economic footprint manufacturing has left in your state? Find that info here with our interactive map. You’ll also be able to get info on upcoming AAM events in your area.

Last stop: Time for action.

After exploring the site, you’re armed with the info you need to be a fully functioning AAM activist. Now, getting involved is easier than ever. On AAM’s Take Action page, you can sign up for email and text message alerts, petition your legislators in favor of pro-manufacturing policy, and get the low-down on those aforementioned AAM events. You'll also find links to all of AAM's social media accounts — Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, you name it.

And thus ends our tour. We hope you've found it informative. But wait: Did you notice something missing? Have something to ask? AAM is all ears, and anxious for your feedback. So speak up! Contact us here.
