Hellenic Culture

We celebrate and promote the contributions of Hellenism. 

The democratic tradition ancient Greece embodied the ideals of legal equality, personal freedom and governance by the people. These principles have been influential around the world, shaping political institutions, revolutionary movements and, as Alexis de Tocqueville famously observed regarding the U.S., even the spirit of society itself.
