On June 16th, 2016, the American Latvian Youth Association (ALJA), the Joint Baltic American National Committee (JBANC) and the Estonian American National Council (EANC) met with Senator Debbie Stabenow’s office (D-MI) to discuss deterrence of Russian aggression, countering the Kremlin information war, and to fully fund President Obama’s European Reassurance Initiative (ERI) which would help “shore up the defenses of NATO members, as well as other non-NATO partners in the region, that feel most threatened by Russia’s actions against Ukraine.”

Senator Stabenow has been an ally of Baltic-American communities, having served for years on the Senate Baltic Caucus, and cosponsored numerous pieces of legislation to support the Baltics. For this reason, JBANC presented Senator Stabenow’s foreign affairs staff with a certificate of appreciation.
