1990 The Beginning
Serbian Unity Congress was launched in Cleveland, Ohio in 1990 at the first annual convention when its founders representing Diaspora Serbs, members of the Royal Family and Serbian Orthodox Church brought together delegates representing 6,000-8,000 Serbs at the first convention.
1991 – 2000 The War and Post-War Years
As the wars of the 90s raged in Serb homelands the Serbian people faced lack of preparedness, the incompetence of the Milosevic regime and general wartime challenges. The Diaspora had a paucity of organizations ready to tackle the challenge. The Serbian Unity Congress responded in unparalleled ways with programs on anti-defamation, humanitarian aid, war crimes and promotion of democracy in Serbia.
Since 2000 – Transition to Democracy
Years of communism and wars drained the Serbian people of its energy, resources and talents and devastated its economy and morale. As Serbia turned to a democratic future the Serbian Unity Congress turned to future challenges and needs and developed programs geared to contribute constructively to the rebuilding of a democratic future for its people.
