If you are a new member, welcome! This regular newsletter will keep you updated about news and events related to the Ukrainian National Women’s League of America.

Last week UNWLA submitted a signed letter to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees. A joint advocacy effort of many organizations, the letter urges the committees to include vital provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act that help ensure Ukraine’s ability to prevail against the Russian invasion.

Please join HIAS and Welcome.US in a joint webinar on learning how your community can welcome Ukrainian newcomers through sponsorship under the Uniting for Ukraine program. The webinar will feature interfaith sponsors from a HIAS Welcome Circle and WelcomeNST, and Ukrainian newcomers whom they have sponsored.

Learn how you can sponsor too, how to get connected with a Ukrainian seeking safe haven in the U.S., and – most importantly – hear directly from sponsors and Ukrainian newcomers about the difference your participation can make in the lives of Ukrainians seeking refuge here.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with the link and other details for joining the webinar.

On November 5th, our Branch 10 invites everyone for a workshop on the making of Didukh. Here are our top 5 reasons to attend and support:

Didukh, traditionally made of straw and lavishly decorated, is an authentic symbol of Christmas in Ukrainian culture. Our ancestors believed it brought a festive mood, peace, prosperity, and comfort to a home.

Didukh is made of wheat and positive energy. As with any creative activity, attending this master class gives you not only an authentic piece of Ukrainian Christmas decor but also a chance to decompress after a work week and meet inspired and kind-hearted Ukrainian women.

You don’t have to scavenge for straws to bring with you! Your $60 ticket gives everything you need to spend a delightful Saturday morning: wheat, decorations, snacks, and coffee to recharge your batteries while making Didukh. It also gives you a chance to try your luck. Each ticket enters the raffle to win a famous Ukrainian stamp with an infamous russian warship.

You’ll meet members of UNWLA Branch 10 and your teacher Iryna Buczkowski, a member of UNWLA Branch 67. We wholeheartedly support such collaboration between our Branches and are truly inspired by their example!

Attending this event, you donate funds to help a young man continue living a fulfilling and independent life.
