WASHINGTON, DC — The U.S. Senate passed by unanimous consent a resolution that commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the Order of AHEPA’s founding, on August 6, 2022, announced Supreme President Jimmy Kokotas.
“We sincerely appreciate the U.S. Senate for commemorating our centennial anniversary, and we are thrilled,” Supreme President Kokotas said. “We are grateful to Senators Chris Van Hollen and Marco Rubio for their sponsorship of the resolution, Senate Judiciary Chairman Dick Durbin for bringing it to the floor, and to its co-sponsors, Senators Mike Braun and Ben Cardin, for their collective support.”
The resolution commemorates the 100th Anniversary of AHEPA’s founding, applauds its mission, and commends the many charitable contributions of its members to communities in the United States and around the world. It also recognizes the significant contributions to the United States of citizens of Hellenic heritage.
“For a century, AHEPA has become an integral piece of the American mosaic, serving as a vital vehicle for the progressive development and emergence of Americans of Hellenic heritage into every facet of society,” Kokotas said. “This fulfillment shows the promise of the American Dream is real. The resolution fittingly captures our 100-year journey, pays homage to our immigrant forebears, and sets forth the significant contributions of Greek Americans to society.”
