Established in 1994 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, C-RS has over 1,700 members worldwide. John Righetti has been its president and spokesman since its inception. The group's flagship publication is The New Rusyn Times.
From 1998 until 2007, C-RS and The Andy Warhol Museum presented an annual festival celebrating Rusyn culture alongside the art of Andy Warhol, one of the most influential 20th-century American artists, who was of Carpatho-Rusyn descent.
In 2004, the C-RS purchased the historic former St. John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Cathedral at 911 Dickson Street in Munhall, Pennsylvania, and converted it into the nation's first National Carpatho-Rusyn Cultural Center.
