HISTORICAL SKETCH

The Joint Baltic American National Committee (JBANC), Inc. was founded on April 27, 1961 at the Baltic Conference in Washington D.C. with the aim to support the restoration of independence and democracy to the Baltic nations, with the help from the united efforts of the Estonian American National Council (EANC), the American Latvian Association (ALA) and the Lithuanian American Council (LAC). These organizations together represented over one million Americans of Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian heritage. With the restoration of the independence in the Baltic countries in 1991, JBANC’s mission has adapted to the current needs of the Baltic peoples and the Baltic American communities in the U.S.
