WELCOME to the official website of the Albanian American Civic League!
To better understand the role that the Albanian American Civic
League has played for the Albanian National Cause for over
twenty-five years now, please look at our
interactive timeline presented herein:
Through Congressional legislation, advocacy, fact-finding missions, intensive research, and hard-hitting analyses, the Albanian American Civic League has been dedicated for more than twenty years to resolving the Albanian national cause and bringing lasting peace and stability to Southeast Europe. In collaboration with foreign policy leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate and a network of committed volunteers around the world, the Civic League works to bring genuine independence to Kosova, equal rights to Albanians in Macedonia, Montenegro, the Presheva Valley, and Chameria, and democracy and economic freedom to Albania.
