Across the United States, many local Ukrainian American communities will return to publicly celebrate Ukraine’s Independence this August. If you or  your local community receive any official proclamations or stage any independence events, please share them with UCCA’s National Office so that we may gather them together with our archives of proclamations and greetings dating back to our founding in 1940. We will further pass along any images and videos to Ukraine through the Embassy in Washington as well as through the Ukrainian World Congress.
