The main goal of the portal is to promote Polish identity in the Polish-American community in the United States and to represent Polish interests in the United States by reactivating the great history of the American Polonia, providing Americans with objective news about Poland, Poles, Polish diaspora and Poles abroad, and developing business contacts between Poland, the United States, the European Union and the Three Seas countries.
