The Eastern European Congress of Ohio (EECOH) culturally unites the people of Ohio whose ancestry and heritage are from Eastern Europe. It fosters discussions and events through bipartisanship to advance Ohio's Eastern European awareness, economic development, and education.
As Eastern Europeans represent 1.1 million in Ohio, we desire to have meaningful dialogue with government leaders to discuss our agenda as other groups in Ohio. We also want to play a key role in the constituency of Ohio.
By unifying Eastern Europeans, the EECOH can retain its population base, attract people to live in Ohio and expand its valuable resources within each Ohioan.
The month of April is designated as "Eastern European Month." The people of Ohio are called upon to observe this month with appropriate educational opportunities, ceremonies, and activities. In honor of Eastern European month we host the annual Eastern European Month Celebration Dinner. The 2021 dinner has been postponed and will resume in 2022.
