The Washington State Algerian Association (WASTAA) is a non-profit, non-religious, non-political, and cultural association created in 2015 to serve the Algerian-American community in Washington State through social, cultural, and educational events.
Each week, WASTAA provides you with latest news related to our community as well as a sneak peak of what's coming up on our events around the Bay Area...so you can learn about concerts, projects, kids, outdoor activities, and more.
Early Ties Between Algeria & USA
On September 5, 1795, when the two countries signed the Treaty of Amity and Peace, a few years after the official recognition of the independence of the young American Republic by the State of Algeria (1783), Algeria was among the first countries that recognized the independence of the United States.
"Our members are committed to building bridges to strengthen friendship and cooperation
between Algeria and the United States"
We, the Washington State Algerian Association (WASTAA), are a social, cultural and educational non-profit organization whose goals are to preserve, promote, and share our Algerian cultural heritage throughout the communities of Washington State and to pass this heritage to our children and future generations.
Our vision is to raise awareness of the Washington State Algerian Association (WASTAA) by growing our membership base and its recognition within our communities through outreach activities, including volunteering, cultural, educational, business networking, sports and youth events as created and implemented by our Board members, Women’s Chapter and Youth Committee.
