Advocating for a united, multi-ethnic and democratic Bosnia and Herzegovina

2020 Virtual ACBH Gala

On December 29, 2020, the Advisory Council for Bosnia and Herzegovina (ACBH) will be hosting a virtual gala to honor long standing friends and supporters of a democratic Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). The year 2020 is an important year as it marks the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide, as well as the 25th anniversary of the Dayton Peace Accords – a U.S.-brokered peace agreement that ended the war in BiH. In that spirit, ACBH plans to recognize individuals that have had an impact on BiH, and have worked to bring about peace and justice. Read more…

Congressional Caucus on Bosnia

ACBH established the Congressional Caucus on BiH (Bosnia Caucus), which currently includes 22 members of U.S. Congress. The Bosnia Caucus is led by Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) and consists of members from both political parties and both chambers of Congress. The Bosnia Caucus is actively engaged in U.S. policy towards Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and enhancing the relationship between the two countries.

Srebrenica Genocide Resolution

ACBH initiated language and process for the Senate Resolution 134 and the House Resolution 199, also known as the Srebrenica Genocide Resolution, which confirmed that “the policies of aggression and ethnic cleansing as implemented by Serb forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1992 to 1995 meet the terms defining the crime of genocide.” This paved the way for a similar resolution in the EU Parliament. In addition, ACBH helped write the language and pass House Resolution 310 commemorating 20 years since the Srebrenica Genocide and acknowledging that genocide took place on the entire territory of BiH – highlighting cities such as Sarajevo and Prijedor and the crimes that took place there.

2007-2017: A Decade of Bosnian American Advocacy

For over a decade, ACBH has been the most effective U.S. non-governmental organization promoting BiH and the interests and needs of Bosnian Americans. It is through the support of our donors, partners and volunteers that ACBH has been able to strengthen and assert the Bosnian American advocacy in front of policymakers in Washington, D.C.

ACBH has organized over 100 events on BiH in Washington, D.C. and across the U.S. in order to advocate for the needs of the Bosnian American community and in promoting the mission of ACBH.


Each year, ACBH organizes the Srebrenica Genocide commemoration in U.S. Congress where we commemorate the victims and inform members of Congress, staff and participants on the dangers of genocide denial and the importance of continued and more robust U.S. engagement in BiH.
