There is a general perception that many people preach but few practice when it comes to the performance of Civic Responsibility. However, at least a few like-minded people should concentrate efforts to practice and preach in a way that expresses full commitment to their convictions. Furthermore, we should all pledge together that we will try our best to become model citizens and loyal residents of this blessed land, the United States of America. Learn More...

The Association of Americans for Civic Responsibility (AACR) held its tenth annual roundtable conference on May 8, 2013, at Syracuse University’s Paul Greenberg House in Washington, D.C. The theme of the conference was “Many Ethnicities, One America.” Participants discussed what it means to be an “ethnic American,” how to overcome challenges to rights and opportunities, how to best foster civic engagement, what ethnic American organizations and communities can learn from one another, and how these groups might work together.
The conference commenced with welcoming remarks by Mr. Chad Tragakis, Senior Vice President of Public Strategies at Hill + Knowlton Strategies, Dr. Joy Cherian, President and Founder of AACR, and Dr. Michael Schneider, Director of the Washington Public Diplomacy program of Syracuse University.
