Prime Minister Jüri Ratas (Centre) visited the remote Western Estonian island of Kihnu on August 15, where he met with local government and civic leaders, visited teh 90-year old singer Kihnu Virve and the site of the island's new rescue centre, among other things.

With JBANC’s Baltic Advocacy Week less than a week away, now is the time to reach out to your Representative’s office. Please refer to this guide if you have any questions about how to set up a meeting. 

“September 2019 will mark 75 years since the huge exodus of Estonians fleeing from the oncoming Soviet terror. Fleeing was difficult both mentally and physically. It brought about a drastic change in life circumstances and resulted in a tragic end for many” - so writes Iivi Zajedova, at whose instigation the Estonian World Council (EWC) adopted a resolution sent to the Estonian government to establish an official national day commemorating this event. The goal is to achieve this for the 75th anniversary.

Ahead of his final approval as the next Estonian Ambassador to the US, Jonatan Vseviov, who is stepping down as permanent secretary at the Ministry of Defence, spoke with ERR's Toomas Sildam this week regarding relations with the United States as well as national defence, two topics with which he is intimately familiar.

A former governor of the Bank of Estonia, Jaan Männik, has confirmed that he will be a candidate in next year's parliamentary elections for the Conservative People's Party of Estonia (EKRE).

As I enter the Estonian House, a limestone townhouse on East 34th Street, I flash back to memories of the times I visited with my father when I was a child growing up in Manhattan. I remember my father purchasing Estonian bread in the café area, and greeting friends and acquaintances in his native Estonian – a complex, musical and, to me at least, mysterious tongue.

EANC is joining forces with our Joint Baltic American National Committee (JBANC) colleagues to rally our communities to contact their Members of Congress (MoCs) at their local district offices during the August Congressional recess. All Estonian Americans are invited to contact their Senators and Representatives during the week of August 20th to raise awareness among MoCs and advocate for issues important to the Baltic region.

Representatives of the Estonian American National Council (EANC) to the board of the Joint  Baltic American National Committee (JBANC), along with the American Latvian Association (ALA) and the Lithuanian American Council (LAC) representatives, drafted the following statement for release by JBANC. All agreed on the importance of informing our constituent communities regarding our views following the recent NATO and Helsinki summits. We invite our community members to share the statement locally and contact the offices of their representatives in Congress to discuss the points it highlights.
