AHEPA Congratulates President-Elect Biden, Greek-American Champions

November 10, 2020

WASHINGTON, DC – AHEPA Supreme President George G. Horiates issued the following statement on the outcome of the 2020 election:

“We congratulate President-elect Joseph R. Biden, Jr. and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their election. We look forward to working with the Biden administration on the public policy priorities that are critical to the American Hellenic community and AHEPA’s mission.

“Furthermore, we congratulate the champions of the American Hellenic community who won re-election to Congress, including Hellenic Caucus Co-Chairs U.S. Representatives Gus Bilirakis and Carolyn Maloney; U.S. Representatives John Sarbanes, Dina Titus, Charlie Crist, and Chris Pappas, and the members of the Hellenic Caucus. We also congratulate Nicole Malliotakis on her election to the U.S. House of Representatives. We look forward to their continued strong support in the 117th Congress and are grateful for it.

“Finally, we commend all Greek-Americans, Philhellenes, and Ahepans who sought public office at the federal, state, and local levels— whether they were successful in their bid or not— because we applaud their dedication and commitment to public service.”

Founded in 1922 in Atlanta, Georgia, on the principles that undergirded its fight for civil rights and against discrimination, bigotry, and hatred felt at the hands of the Ku Klux Klan, AHEPA is the largest and oldest grassroots association of American citizens of Greek heritage and Philhellenes with more than 400 chapters across the United States, Canada, and Europe.

AHEPA's mission is to promote the ancient Greek ideals of Education, Philanthropy, Civic Responsibility, and Family and Individual Excellence through community service and volunteerism.
