We traditionally spend November honoring victims of the 1932-1933 famine in Ukraine. The UNWLA was one of the first organizations to inform the world of the Holodomor, and our members organize annual Holodomor-related events across the country. 

This November, we continue the legacy of advocating for the more than 10 million victims of the Holodomor. We also support millions of Ukrainians living through the newest russian assault on Ukraine. This assistance takes many forms: we raise funds to keep Ukraine warm in the looming winter. We advocate for more support for Ukraine in the international arena. We vote for supporters of Ukraine in Congress. We cultivate our rich traditions and educate the community on what it means to be Ukrainian. We, as a sisterhood, care that the Ukrainian spirit remains strong.

Please join us in our meaningful work this November. This newsletter will keep you informed about the news and updates from the UNWLA.  If you are a new member of the UNWLA, welcome!

The midterm elections are on November 8, 2022! Now is the time to pay particular attention to what the candidates are saying about the russian war against Ukraine. It’s not too late to register to vote for the midterm elections! Visit www.vote.org to learn about your state’s requirements and ensure your voice is heard. Wherever possible, please make efforts within your communities to have voter registration drives.Screen Shot 2022 11 17 at 5.35.05 PM | UNWLA - Ukrainian National Womens League of America
