Last week, on October 28th, the Joint Baltic American National Committee (JBANC) joined a discussion together with the three Baltic embassies to discuss current issues in Washington, DC related to Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
One of the main topics was the upcoming 20th-anniversary celebration of the House Baltic Caucus (HBC), which is being organized on Capitol Hill on December 7. JBANC has also been visiting offices in U.S. Congress to discuss the upcoming anniversary of HBC and great U.S. - Baltic ties. More updates are about to follow this month.
Another key point was regarding plans and preparations for the Baltic centennial celebrations across the U. S. in 2018, and a possible Baltic Advocacy Day in Congress in the upcoming spring. Stay tuned for more information and don't forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube!
