LEP2022 Registration Information

In order to simplify LEP ticketing, we are offering two tickets: a LEP “Base Ticket”, which is all inclusive of LEP activities, with the exception of the Gala, and a Gala Ticket.

The LEP “Base Ticket” includes:

In the week leading up to the discussions taking place in Europe January 10-13 regarding Ukraine’s security and Western relations with Russia, Baltic Americans and the broader diaspora communities from central and eastern Europe have issued statements, letters, and calls to action to let U.S. policymakers know our concerns. The Estonian American National Council has been actively supporting and promoting these efforts.

Estonian American voters still have the opportunity to participate in the American Latvian Association’s latest call to action to contact the White House and Members of Congress (MoCs).


The initiative calls out Russian President Putin’s revanchist agenda to restore the Cold War “spheres of influence” through its threats to Ukraine. It also encourages support for appropriations for robust security assistance for Ukraine and the Baltic countries, which has already been authorized in the Defense budget, and for existing legislation that protects European energy security.

Dear Mr. President:

With anticipation and trepidation, the Baltic-American community is looking ahead to next week’s talks between the United States and the Russian Federation on the situation related to Moscow’s aggression against Ukraine.


We value your administration’s consistent and ongoing resistance to the Kremlin’s aggression in the region and support for our allies and partners.

After a year's hiatus, organizers of the San Francisco Baltic Christmas Fair were very happy to open the doors of the Latvian Hall to vendors and visitors once again this past December 4th.
