ACBH would like to thank Mehdi ef. Demirovic and President Senahid Halilovic for their undivided support of our work, as well as their generous contribution to our organization. We all remember Columbia University's actions that occurred on October 25, 2011 in New York City. The University's Harriman Institute of Russian, Eurasian, and Eastern European Studies hosted Milorad Dodik, the President of Republika Srpska (RS), where he gave a lecture titled "An American Foreign Policy Success Story: The Dayton Accords, Republika Srpska, and Bosnia's European Integration." The Columbia Daily Spectator student publication and other newspapers had reported that individuals with non-Serb sounding names were taken off of the admissions list, and were not allowed to attend the lecture. The aforementioned incident is all the more reason for the Bosnian-American community in New York to become more unified so that we can counter such acts more efficiently and effectively.
New York, as the center of global diplomacy, academia, and media is a particularly important theater for successful work of ACBH, thus the support of our New York community is that much more precious. We look forward to continuing to connect and expand our outreach efforts in the New York tri-state area; and in the coming weeks, we look forward to building our nationwide efforts in Georgia, Connecticut, Arizona, Florida, California, Illinois, Missouri, Washington State and other community centers throughout the nation.
