🔵 Ukrainian Days in Washington, DC

The next in-person “Ukraine Days” advocacy event will be held in Washington, DC following the midterm elections. This is an opportunity to acquaint elected officials with our concerns for:

  • increased security assistance for Ukraine and continued strong sanctions against Russia,
  • recognizing the current war in Ukraine as genocide
  • designating Russia as a State Sponsor of Terrorism
  • support for humanitarian programs to aid Ukrainians afflicted by the war.

The U.S. has been instrumental in providing military, financial, and humanitarian aid to Ukraine. Meeting with elected officials in person is also an opportunity to thank them for their work.

Ukraine Days are sponsored by the Ukrainian National Information Service (UNIS), the Washington, DC public affairs bureau of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA)

Save November 15-17 to attend Ukrainian Days in Washington, DC!
