AMEN was honored to celebrate its Second Anniversary Celebration on December 10th, 2023 in Alexandria, Virginia. The free event showcased a video reviewing all of AMEN's activities from the launch in November 2021 through November 2023, speeches from elected officials and community leaders, music performances with several cultural dances, and two cultural fashion shows!
Here is a text of the speech from Anh Tu Do, AMEN's Founder and President:
"Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests, and fellow patriots,
Thank you all for joining us this afternoon as we celebrate the second anniversary of the American Minority Engagement Network, or AMEN. It's truly an honor to stand before you, reflecting on the journey we've embarked on over the past two years.
AMEN was born out of a simple yet powerful idea - the belief that conservative values are universal and resonate within every community. We're not just an organization; we're a movement that thrives on unity, inclusivity, and the shared commitment to core principles.
Our mission is clear: to champion conservative values within minority communities. But what does that mean for us? It means fostering understanding, building bridges, and promoting dialogue. It means standing together, regardless of background or origin, to advocate for principles like individual liberty, freedom of religion, economic freedom, law and order, and traditional family values.
Tonight, as we reflect on our journey, let's also look forward. AMEN is not just about the past or the present; it's about the future we're building together. It's about creating a space where conservative values are not confined by borders, where they resonate with every heart that beats in the rhythm of liberty and tradition.
I invite each and every one of you to join us in this journey. AMEN is not just an organization; it's a community - a community where your voice matters, your culture and values are celebrated, and where we work together to shape a future that reflects the best of our shared conservative ideals.
As we celebrate this milestone, let's renew our commitment to fostering dialogue, understanding, and unity. Let's continue to build a nation where conservative values know no boundaries and are cherished by every community.
I am very grateful to our dedicated team, our passionate volunteers, to partner organizations such as the Leadership Institute, and the generous donors who make our mission possible. Your dedication has been the driving force behind our accomplishments, and I am confident that with your continued support, AMEN will continue to thrive and achieve our mission.
Thank you for being part of the AMEN story, and here's to many more years of promoting conservative values and minority engagement.
Cheers to AMEN and to each one of you who makes this journey worthwhile. Thank you."
