How is this effective? It helps to know what is important for your member of Congress. Plus, this might be a place where your member of Congress discusses issues related to the Baltics that can be shared with the Baltivist community.

Stories will also be shared with the community on social media, here on, and with other Baltivist Bells subscribers.

The Baltic Advocacy Day on November 8th in D.C. was incredibly successful! We had around 40 meetings with Congressional staff to discuss issues affecting the Baltics.

On December 20, 2019, President Trump signed N.D.A.A. into law, which increases military funds to the Baltics, impeded the building of a Russian gas pipeline, among others. Members can read more here.

Just before Christmas break, the U.S. Senate confirmed the nomination of Ambassador Gilchrist as ambassador from the U.S. to Lithuania. Members of the Baltic activist community are generally supportive of the nomination and will meet with Amb. Gilchrist before he leaves for Lithuania. The post has been empty since July, 2019.
