The Commission on Decolonization was established by the 24th Guam Legislature in 1997 to enhance the efforts of the Commission on Self-Determination. Its purpose is to educate the people of Guåhan of the various political status options available. The Commission on Decolonization, however, was inactive for several years during the 2000s. Governor Edward A. Calvo relaunched the Commission on Decolonization in 2011. The Commission on Decolonization is comprised of 10 members of the community and the Governor of Guam, who serves as Chair. The Executive Director in 2022 was Melvin Won-Pat Borja, appointed by Governor Lou Leon Guerrero.
