French District, UFE, the Consulate General of France in Los angeles, French Morning and Splash PR Agency are the media partners of our major event, the French Heritage Night 2016: February 18 at the Staples Center!


Union des Français à l’Etranger


Founded in 1927 by Gabriel Wernlé, the UFE is an association which first mission is to create and maintain contact with the French citizens living abroad. The UFE operates in 100 countries through 170 representations led by volunteers.

Their main activities are to represent and to intervene with the National Public Authorities and also the European Institutions, managing the relations with the Senators and advisors of the Assembly of French Citizens Abroad (in French: l’Assemblée des Français à l’Etranger ). This last one is the political body representing French citizens living outside France.

The association is characterized by 4 values: welcome the expatriates, the mutual aid, friendliness and the brilliance because every representation of the association is a small piece of France abroad.

The UFE also represents French expatriates with the local administrations in the countries where they have an office. Moreover, when those expatriates decide to come back to France, the association provides them support and advices. Not only they help French expatriates to deal with the administrative part but they offer cultural events too.

French District

French District was created in 2008 by 3 French friends who live in the US. Laure, Romain and Ben created French District to provide French-speaking US residents with a service directory in their language. The association quickly became a leading resource for all French-speaking residents and prospective tourists.

The French District operates in Florida (Miami, Orlando, Tallahassee, St Petersburg, Naples, Key West), in New-York (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Harlem, Staten Island, Bronx, Queens), Atlanta, Georgia, South California, North California, Chicago, Boston, Washington D.C. and Texas.

They provide information about culture, advices, events and also news from France.


The role of the Consulate General of France in Los Angeles is to protect the French Community and its properties and interests to Californian authorities.

The consulate also lists the French in the region, holds the registry office (civil status), delivers passports, insures the contact with the national authorities, issues mandates of vote and organizes elections.

It is the go-between with the Embassy. The general Consul is entitled to collect commercial data and to stimulate economic relations in spite of the creation of the economic expansion departments (some of them established within the Consulate). The consul generally plays in its district a role of representation and communication similar to this of the ambassador today.
