2010 "Hungarian-Americans Together," Chicago
10/25/2010 - AHF participates in the fifth Hungarian-Americans Together (HATOG) conference, held in Chicago, October 9-10, 2010. Thirty-five Hungarian-American leaders of 22 organizations from eight states participated. The Conference aims to build a network of communication and collaboration among Hungarian organizations in the United States and to develop a strategy for saving and strengthening our Hungarian heritage and culture.
The Conference was hosted by the Hungarian Club of Chicago, the Hungarian Society of Chicago, St. Stephen, King of Hungary Catholic Church, the Transylvanian Association, the Hungarian Communion of Friends, the Hungarian Cultural Advisory Council, and the Hungarian-Americans for Human Rights in Délvidék. Coordination in raising relief funds for the victims of the red-sludge disaster in Hungary was added to the previously crafted agenda. (The disaster occurred on October 7, 2010, just days before the conference.)
The Conference aims to build a network of communication and collaboration among Hungarian organizations in the United States and to develop a strategy for saving and strengthening our Hungarian heritage and culture. Participants elaborated principles for the building of a new forum and infrastructure by the Government of Hungary to assist the Western diaspora and include its representatives in global Hungarian cooperation.
