WASHINGTON, DC—The American Hellenic Institute is pleased to announce Mr. Alex Aliferis as a new addition to its staff.

The new hire will be working as a Legislative Assistant for the American Hellenic Institute responsible for working on a daily basis with members of Congress and their staff.

Alex Aliferis is from Northern California born to Greek immigrant parents. Mr. Aliferis has a Bachelor’s of Arts from the University of California, Davis, in political science. During his college years, he was President of the Hellenic Student Association. He has a mix of political experience and media work.

In mid 2001, he started a volunteer radio talk show called, Hidden Worlds, for KDVS 90.3 FM in Davis, CA. The weekly radio show lasted for several months until 2002. He focused on international human rights topics with co-host, Dr. Roger Apodaca.

He exposed a Skopian led resolution in the California Assembly in 2004 for the National Herald.

"I’m thrilled to be in Washington working for the American Hellenic Institute," said Aliferis. He added, "I hope to contribute to the Greek American community with my knowledge and investigative reporting experience."
