As we return from the third annual American Field in Boston—where 83 great American brands came together to celebrate and share the American made movement—we feel an enthusiasm unmatched in our five-plus year history. This momentum will carry us into American Made Matters Day on November 19th, where AMM Ambassadors will conduct events in at least 22 locations throughout the US. Our spirits are high as our reach expands!
Since our last newsletter, we launched our second video, broke 30,000 fans, friends, and followers on social media, exceeded 300 member companies, hit 45 of 50 states represented by our members, began member features on Facebook, spoke to the White House about a program to boost US manufacturing, enlisted 22 AMM Ambassadors for AMM Day, and played a role in creating a renewed interest among consumers to buy American!
Employment losses in US manufacturing are tapering off and exports are on the rise. According to WWD, the US increased exports of apparel by 4.5% last year versus the previous year, and by 5.9% in motor vehicles and parts–so our efforts are helping reduce our trade deficit as well as job loss.
American made matters to more consumers every day. Please consider joining our ambassadors on November 19th, AMM Day, by attending an event in one of the following locations or hosting an even in your community.
Averill Park, New York
Cave Creek, Arizona
Charleston, South Carolina
East Moline, Illinois
Hillsdale, New Jersey

Together, we are making a difference and changing the story!
