The Government of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
A lot of languages that were part of america's culture have disappeared due to globalization and other kind of problems like discrimination (germanophobia, anti-irish propaganda, etc). Lets save Pennsylvania's culture by preserving the language and promoting it's use, teaching younger generations Pennsylvania German will give to our children a unique multilingual experience and will allow them to re-connect with their past.
