Last week, members of the Slovenian-American community gathered at the Embassy to celebrate the upcoming 31st anniversary of Slovenian Independence and Unity, commemorating the 1991 independence referendum, and to mark the opening of the ‘Us & Them’ exhibit, showcasing over a century of Slovenian-American achievement! 🇸🇮 🇺🇸
Approaching nearly thirty years of US-Slovenian relations, we reflect on the accomplishments and triumphs of so many Slovenian-Americans, who we have the privilege of working with on a daily basis. The alliance between our two nations is strong, and will get stronger still. It is important that as we move into the next decade of diplomacy, we acknowledge the work of the scientists 🧑‍🔬, inventors 🔧, aviators 🪁, astronauts 👩🏽‍🚀, authors 🖋️, and others who link our countries together in ways beyond our political relations 🇸🇮🤝🏼🇺🇸
