On March 30 and 31, local community leaders welcomed 16 professionals from Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia, visiting through the U.S. Department of State Professional Fellows Program.

The Great Lakes Consortium for International Training and Development of Toledo organized the delegation’s 42-day fellowship to the U.S. entitled, “Citizen Legislative Advocacy in Minority Communities.” The purpose of the trip was to share information about the U.S. government, citizen participation and community organizing.

While in Toledo, the delegation met with City of Oregon Administrator Michael Beazley, and Peter Ujvagi and Schuyler Beckwith from the Lucas County Commissioners’ office to learn about community organizing activities in the Birmingham and Lagrange neighborhoods.

The contingent also met with Toledo City Council members Joe McNamara and Steve Steele, visited Imagination Station and the Toledo Museum of Art and attended a welcoming event hosted by the Hungarian Club of Toledo.
