Ethiopian New Year brought tens of thousands of  people to the grounds of the Washington Monument for a memorable evening on Sunday September 9, 2012.  Ethiopian African Millennium Group (EAMG 2000) was born out of the Ethiopian African 2000 Millennium celebration at the Washington Monument five years a go on September 11/2007. That event was the dream of one of the youth leaders in the Washington, D.C. area named Anteneh Demelash of Addis Zemen LLC, which brought over 30,000 people to the National Mall. The founders of the group in addition to Anteneh are: Ellias Fullmore, Alemayehu Haile, Asratie Teferra, Mulugeta Tsegaye, and James Williams. The group again re-convened after five years with the rekindled vision of Alemyehu Haile the vice chair, and Asratie Teferra who is the group's chair to launch an annual Ethiopian New Year in the spirit of Cinco De-Mayo,  Chinese New Year, or St. Patrick’s day adding to the American tapestry of culture. With this event, EAMG2000 intend to build bridges with the larger African Diaspora including Caribbean and African Americans, as well as share their culture with the American public.
