TILTS was first established in 1969 as the "Poughkeepsie Latvian Association." Its goals were to keep alive and support Latvian heritage, traditions, and values within the local community of people of Latvian extraction, to bridge the Iron Curtain with cultural exchanges, and to work towards the restoration of Latvia’s independence. As the geographic scope of our activities expanded, we incorporated as the “Mid-Hudson Latvian Association” in 1988 and, finally, as TILTS ("BRIDGE" in Latvian), reflecting our broadened scope after restoration of Latvian independence. The members of TILTS recognize that Latvian culture needs support for it to survive and grow. Please join us to make this happen! 1969 Jan 01

Sveiki! and Welcome! to TILTS

TILTS is incorporated in the U.S.A. as a non-profit organization with the objective to foster Latvian culture and education. The English translation of TILTS is BRIDGE, symbolizing the building of a bridge for cultural interaction and enrichment between Latvians in Latvia and those residing abroad.

TILTS is a global organization, and our membership is not limited or related to any specific geographical location.

TILTS is a member of the Latvian American Association, the Latvian Foundation and the Council of Latvian organizations in New York. We regularly communicate and cooperate with the Ministry of Culture and other governmental offices in Latvia.

Our major goals at TILTS are:

  • To foster the appreciation of the Latvian language, ethnic traditions, history and culture.
  • To promote Latvian culture among Americans of Latvian descent by arranging cultural events and by recognizing contributors to this culture.
  • To form a bridge for cultural interaction between Latvians in Latvia and those abroad.
  • To disseminate information in America pertaining to Latvia and its achievements.
  • To foster the preservation of Latvian identity, placing particular emphasis on support of schools and youth in Latvia.
