Since 1977, UCCA has maintained a permanent Washington, D.C.-based bureau, the Ukrainian National Information Service (UNIS), to assist Ukrainian Americans from across the country in meeting with their elected representatives. In addition to maintaining our relationships with the bipartisan Congressional Ukrainian Caucus in the House of Representatives and the bipartisan Senate Ukraine Caucus, the UNIS office sends out regular ACTION ALERTS to our membership, informing our grassroots activists of the latest initiatives affecting our community.

On behalf of the Ukrainian American community, UCCA’s UNIS office submitted a position paper entitled, “United States Relations with Ukraine” to both the Democratic and Republican National Committees in advance of their respective political conventions in 2020.
