Since its inception, the American Hellenic Council has been the focal point of political activities of Greek-Americans in California. In its 35 years, the AHC has become an effective and respected political action group whose purpose is to lobby the U.S. Congress for the protection and promotion of Greek-American interests. The American Hellenic Council has supported numerous issues on behalf of the Hellenic American community, participated and sponsored fundraising events, and raised significant contributions for members of Congress who support Hellenic issues.
