Flashback: BAFL at the White House

“On March 11, 2024, Lithuania celebrated the 34th anniversary of its restored independence. In April 1990, 14 representatives of the Baltic communities, including BAFL members Angela Nelsas, Tony Mazeika and Mari-Ann Kelam met with President Bush at the White House to urge him to back the brave Lithuanian parliament’s vote to re-establish their independence.
