Congressman Space Commends AHI with Proclamation Entered into Congressional Record

WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Rep. Zack Space (D-OH) on April 13, 2010 entered into the Congressional Record “A Proclamation Honoring the American Hellenic Institute” for “its principled commitment to the causes important to Hellenic people across the world.”

“We are grateful to Congressman Space for his proclamation extolling AHI and the work it performs on behalf of Greek Americans and Hellenes everywhere,” Executive Director Nick Larigakis said. “The congressman is one of the Greek American community’s champions on Capitol Hill in support of the rule of law and his work is valued tremendously by the community.”

The proclamation enumerates several contributions of AHI including its work to strengthen U.S.-Greece relations, to reunify Cyprus, and to advance religious freedom for the Ecumenical Patriarchate, in addition to AHI’s work on educational initiatives and cultural awareness and preservation.
