Dear Friends of Ukraine,


The Ukrainian National Information Service (UNIS), the Washington DC public affairs bureau of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), is continuing its #SupportUkraine! campaign in 2017 by sponsoring its second-in-a-series of advocacy events in Washington, DC.

The second #SupportUkraine! event will be a one-day “Ukrainian Day” advocacy fete on Wednesday, June 14, 2017.  A briefing session about US-Ukraine relations and an overview of pending congressional legislation will be held at 9am at the United Methodist Building (near the Supreme Court).  Participants will be provided briefing materials prior to the advocacy event to familiarize themselves with congressional actions regarding Ukraine.

Following the briefing session, "Ukrainian Day" participants will walk the halls of Congress and meet with their respective congressional offices to advocate issues of concern.  UNIS is honored that the Ukrainian American Youth Civics Group, as part of the Ukrainian Heritage School of Greater Delaware Valley (the tri-state metropolitan region of Philadelphia), will once again participate in the "Ukrainian Day" advocacy event.  The next generation of civic leaders in the Ukrainian community initiated a campaign of contacting Congress to join the Congressional Ukrainian and Senate Ukraine Caucuses.  Membership in the Caucuses is an important element to continued efforts to #SupportUkraine!

Later that evening, a "Ukrainian Day" reception will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the formation of the Congressional Ukrainian Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Senators and Members of Congress will also be recognized with the “Friend of UNIS” award for their contributions to the security and development of Ukraine.

A registration form for the “Ukrainian Day” advocacy event is provided below.  For a schedule of events for the “Ukrainian Day” advocacy event, please contact UNIS at 202-547-0018 or the UCCA National Office at 212-228-6840, or email Tamara Olexy at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The event will be held the same week as the Speaker of Ukraine's Parliament, Andriy Parubiy, and Acting Minister of Health, Ulana Suprun, will be meeting with U.S. government officials in Washington, DC.

A Ukraine “Report Card” conference will also be held onThursday, June 15, 2017 (day after "Ukrainian Day").  For the conference program and registration form please contact Tamara Olexy at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  As space is limited, please RSVP at your earliest convenience to assure attendance.

 

This is a very important event for the Ukrainian community as we continue to focus on Ukraine's security and Euro-Atlantic integration.  Our goal in the advocacy event is to seek support for Ukraine's immediate needs - military assistance; increased sanctions against Russia; deter Russian propaganda and disinformation; and, humanitarian assistance for Ukraine's nearly 2 million internally displaced persons.



PLEASE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO HAVE YOUR COMMUNITY REPRESENTED IN WASHINGTON FOR THIS ADVOCACY EVENT!

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact UNIS at 202 547-0018, or by e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Looking forward to seeing you in Washington in mid-June 2017!
