Who is HELADA?
majority of HELADA members hold US or dual citizenship, yet a sizeable number are
Greeks or other-country nationals. Some have lived socially
well-connected, well-heeled lives, and a few have experienced real
hardship, while the bulk could be called middle-class. Many members hold
university degrees, including a fair number of doctorals, in a variety of
fields. Yet, more than one of us have also waited tables or cleaned
others’ bathrooms at some point in our careers. Some have trained in the
sciences, some in humanities, some in management disciplines. There are a
couple of peaceniks and a few who have served in combat. Some of us are
freelance and freewheeling, while others must deal with mainstream
entities less accepting of views outside that mainstream.
We don't agree 100% on the issues, although we all subscribe to the sentiments in our mission statement. To accommodate our different 'voices' and opinions, we have stated our overview on most issues. Individual comments and recommended article links are shared in our Forum.
At present, anyone is welcome to read the Issues pages, but the Forum is limited to members. And we want to know who our members are. Consequently, we ask for verifiable contact information when someone joins, but allow 'user names' on the Forum to protect private information.
There is no membership fee, only an obligation to civilized discourse. To become a HELADA member, please use the Registration box on the Forum.
