Washington, DC (UNIS) - The Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA) and its Washington,
DC public relations bureau, the Ukrainian National Information Service (UNIS), will sponsor the first in-aseries
of advocacy events in our nation’s capital this year, entitled “Ukrainian Days.” On Wednesday,
March 4-5, 2015, the Ukrainian community will have an opportunity to express their concerns to
Members of Congress and encourage them to continue promoting and supporting a strong and effective
U.S. foreign policy towards Ukraine.
After successful advocacy of Ukrainian issues in last year’s Congress, this “Ukrainian Days” series will be
of utmost importance as a follow-up to the Ukraine Freedom Support Act signed into law in December
2014. Given the overwhelming support that Ukraine received last year, this late-winter advocacy event
will reinforce Ukraine’s immediate security concerns of preserving its territorial integrity and
sovereignty, maintaining border security, safeguarding its independence, and continuing economic
reform. It is critical that our community actively demonstrate its interest in these crucial matters.
The two-day advocacy program is supported by the Central and East European Coalition (CEEC). As a
founding member of the CEEC, the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America works in tandem with the
CEEC to advance U.S. foreign policy issues in Central and East Europe. A briefing session with Ukraine
experts will be held on Wednesday morning, March 4th to acquaint the participants with latest
information from Ukraine, as well as to review the advocacy issues. On Thursday morning March 5th, a
breakfast meeting will be held with members of the Congressional Ukrainian Caucus. Additional planned
events include a tribute to Taras Shevchenko at the newly-renovated Shevchenko Memorial and a debriefing
session on Thursday afternoon.
Founded by the UCCA during the height of the Cold War in 1977, UNIS has been instrumental in
advocating the community’s concerns for almost four decades. Its unwavering commitment in bringing
about independence for Ukraine and, since 1991 enhancing the bilateral relations between Ukraine and
the United States, has earned it much respect throughout Washington, DC.
SAVE THE DATE: March 4-5, 2015! Join us in advancing our community’s concerns in our nation’s
capital. Further information will be forthcoming on the UNIS Facebook page and the UCCA website
