ProEnglish is very proud to announce that 2019 marks our 25th anniversary!
ProEnglish originally was established 25 years ago, and in the ensuing quarter-century our mission and our objectives have always remained the same: to be the nation’s leading advocate for official English; to work through the courts and in the court of public opinion to defend English’s historic role as America’s common, unifying language; and to persuade lawmakers to adopt English as the official language at all levels of government.
ProEnglish is very proud to have been able to have several meetings directly in the White House with a variety of aides to both President Trump and Vice President Pence about a new Executive Order to effectively repeal and replace former President Clinton’s onerous EO 13166 that mandates taxpayer-funded foreign language translations and interpretations for all federally-funded agencies and contractors.
ProEnglish is also proud of its perseverance and tenacity on Capitol Hill as we seek passage of the English Language Unity Act to make English the official language of federal governmental operations.
ProEnglish continues to strive to add to the list of 32 states that have passed official English legislation.
ProEnglish is pleased by its victories all across the nation to stem the tide of multilingual education programs, including those in California, Arizona, and Massachusetts, as led by ProEnglish Board of Directors Chair, Dr. Rosalie Porter, who also testified in Congress before the U.S. House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution.
ProEnglish celebrates its many court victories, including Escamilla v. Cabrera at the Arizona Supreme Court, and also Arizonans for Official English v. Arizona, Sandoval v. Alexander, and Home v. Flores, all at the United States Supreme Court.
ProEnglish has proclaimed its advocacy for official English throughout the national media, including in the Washington Post, Washington Times, Washington Examiner, Wall Street Journal, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, Houston Chronicle, San Francisco Chronicle, Las Vegas Review-Journal, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, as well as on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, National Public Radio, Breitbart News, Salem Media, Sirius XM Satellite Radio, American Family Radio, Voice of America, and the BBC. ProEnglish also has a very active social media and e-mail presence, including more than 160,000 Facebook fans and more than 100,000 active e-mail members.
ProEnglish is very proud of all that it has accomplished over the past 25 years, and we look forward to accomplishing so much more in the next 25!
