Moldovan Americans are Americans who are from the Republic of Moldova or are descended from Moldovans. According to the U.S. 2000 census, there are 7,859 Moldovan Americans in the United States. However, the American Community Survey indicated that the number of Moldovan immigrants to the United States between 2007 and 2011 exceeds 31,000 people. Most Moldovan Americans are Orthodox Christians. Moldovan communities exist in cities such as New York and Washington, D.C. Moldovans have Moldovan food restaurants in United States, in places such as New York City.
In addition, several Moldovan associations can be found in the United States, such as the “Casa Mare” in Washington, D.C., and the "Moldova for Democracy and Development" and "Grigore Vieru" organizations in Brooklyn, New York. Another important Moldovan association is "The Moldova Foundation," a non-profit organization established in Washington, D.C. in 2003, whose main goal is to support people in Moldova and to encourage them to establish economic reforms and a democratic system in the country (which would include "freedom of speech, pluralism and private initiative"), through support of the United States and the European Union.
