Last month, the resolution that addresses the key issue that all Soyuzianky have been advocating for, H.Res.149: Condemning the forced transfer of Ukrainian children from occupied territories to Russia, passed the International Relations Committee in the U.S. Congress. U.S.
Representatives recognized the efforts of the Ukrainian-American community during the mark-up hearings, and Soyuzianka Marta Fedoriv, who chairs the UNWLA’s Return Ukraine’s Children initiative, was named and thanked during the hearing.
Here is a quote from the transcript of the speech by Congresswoman Wild:
Please get engaged: join the UNWLA advocacy group, come to Washington, DC for the springtime Summit (dates to be announced soon), continue building relationships with your elected officials, and continue the dialogue with your friends and neighbors who don’t understand why American support for Ukraine is necessary.
