Welcome to Albanians for Biden!
When former Vice President Joe Biden was a US senator, our Albanian American Civic League worked with him in advancing the righteous cause of the Albanian people of Kosova for freedom and statehood. Joe Biden was one of the key US senators that sided with the Civic League in educating the US Congress and the State Department about the need for US foreign policy to reposition itself against the Serbian brutality under war criminal and dictator Slobodan Milosevic.
We have been supportive of Joe Biden’s previous electoral races, and we feel that the Albanian American community is ready to stand up in support of Joe Biden’s Presidential bid. We do this in honor of what the Albanian American Civic League, led by former US Congressman Joe DioGuardi and Shirley Cloyes DioGuardi, has been able to accomplish in favor of the Albanian national cause with the support of then-Senator Biden. Hence, our support for Joe Biden stems not from partisanship, as we have friends whom we support on both sides of the isle – Democrats and Republicans, but out of our respect for his contribution on the work of our Civic League.
Joe Biden is a friend and supporter. The Albanian American community and all Albanians in their ethnic lands in Southeast Europe consider Joe Biden to be a true American hero. He has always stood up for what’s right and for those who were in harm’s way, such as the Kosovar Albanians during the Kosova War of 1998-99.
As Americans we value democracy and freedom, opportunity and equality, as some of the most important pillars of a great society and country. As Albanian Americans we cherish this land and believe in our nation’s future as one that treasures its diversity and nourishes its unity under one flag!
Please join us in supporting our good friend and American statesman in his bid to become the next President of the United States, by donating or volunteering.

Former Republican Congressman Joe DioGuardi Endorses Biden for President
New York, 14 September 2020—At the beginning of September, 2020, Joe DioGuardi joined the “Former Republican Members of Congress for Biden” campaign. Like DioGuardi, every former Republican member who has signed on to this list is gravely concerned about Donald Trump’s conduct as President of the United States.
DioGuardi believes that former Congressman Christopher Shays (R-CT) captured his core
values when he said that, “For me, what matters is that we have a president who speaks to our better nature, Donald Trump speaks to our darker nature.”
First and foremost, DioGuardi believes that voting for Joe Biden will help Americans create a national plan to stop the spread of the coronavirus pandemic—the most damaging development in our time impacting both our health and our economy.
Second, Joe DioGuardi believes that Albanian Americans have no logical alternative to voting for former Vice President Joe Biden because of his historic involvement in the issue of Kosova’s freedom from Serbian rule—even calling Milosevic a war criminal to his face when Biden met with him in 1993. DioGuardi has said that we can trust Joe Biden when it comes to the future of America’s foreign policy in Southeast Europe, based on his three decades serving the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and his two terms as Chair of that committee, from 2001 to 2003 and from 2007 to 2009.
