Turkish American National Steering Committee
The Turkish American National Steering Committee (TASC) describes its mission as “to promote and amplify a united Turkish American voice on issues that affect the Turkish American community and United States-Turkish relations.” Its leaders however reflect close ties with Turkish President Erdoğan. TASC’s previous co-chair, Halil Mutlu, is President Erdoğan’s cousin. Current TASC co-chair Gunay Evinch, is a principal of Saltzman & Evinch, a law firm retained by Turkey and registered as a foreign agent of Turkey. Its former treasurer, Murat Guzel, detailed his engagement in US political activities in e‑mails to Erdoğan family members. TASC has run events with groups from the Global Muslim Brotherhood, including an event where president Erdoğan spoke alongside and met with a number of USMB leaders including Oussama Jamal of the US Council of Muslim Organizations.
