The Georgian Association is managed by an all-volunteer board of directors who are passionate about promoting Georgian history and culture through cultural events and promoting Georgian interests through advocacy. In 2020, the association sponsored three virtual events dealing with literature and parliamentary elections. In 2021, we completed a series on Georgian Female Artists, led by one of our board members, Nina Mdivani and hosted a webinar on The Rule of Law in Georgia, initiated by another board member, Salome Tsereteli-Stephens. In 2022, our book club read Kvachi Kvachantiradze and Samoseli Pirveli. We have been active in advocacy with Ukrainian community and Central and Eastern European Coalition, and also joined the American Coalition for Ukraine.
Most recently, we celebrated 105th anniversary of Georgian independence and 91st anniversary of the Georgian Association with a reception and art show featuring Shota Saganelidze’s calligraphy art at the US Senate, where we awarded People’s Ambassador awards to notable community members – Marusya Chavchavadze (American Friends of Georgia) and The Synetic Theater.
The association plans to sponsor additional events in the future and is counting on continued financial support from the Georgian community and interested parties to maintain these activities. The association is also continuing its advocacy for an independent and democratic Georgia through its interactions with Congressional Representatives. Your tax-deductible donations can be made easily through the Donate button.
