2022 marks the Order of AHEPA’s 100th Birthday, and to celebrate, AHEPA is taking us back to the happiest place on earth, the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida! Pack up your families and bring plenty of sunscreen to join the AHEPA in this once in a lifetime celebration of a century of service! (See Brochure below).
We at the Hellenic Electronic Center and our project Greece in Epcot are in full support of AHEPA and its traditions for Hellenism. An important component of AHEPA’s mission is to create an awareness of the principles of Hellenism to society. These principles include a commitment to humanity, freedom, and democracy.
These are the exact causes for our project Greece in Epcot, and signing our petition will help to fulfil our goal.
What is AHEPA
The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) is by far the largest Greek-American organization. Its scope is international – with chapters in the United States, Canada, Greece and Cyprus and sister chapters in Australia and New Zealand. AHEPA was founded July 26, 1922, in Atlanta, Georgia, by visionary Americans of Greek descent to protect Hellenes from the evils of bigotry and to help assimilate them into American society in the early 20th Century. Although a majority of the membership is composed of Americans of Hellenic descent, application for membership is open to everyone who believes in the mission of the organization.
