‘UNWLA Service Month’ connects social welfare, culture, and Holodomor.
We invite our UNWLA branches and members to participate in ‘UNWLA Service Month: November.’ This is where we give back to our communities here in America, share our thanks, bring attention to the need for feeding the hungry, and introduce, when appropriate, the tragedy of genocide, the Ukrainian Holodomor, and the current genocide unfolding in Ukraine.
In November, the Ukrainian genocide, Holodomor, is remembered with liturgy, exhibitions, lectures, and proclamations. But November is also when we celebrate Thanksgiving by gathering family and friends around a traditional meal and expressing thanks for the good that has encircled us throughout the year. We, who have much, can make the connection to those who have suffered in the past and provide for those now in need in our neighborhoods.
