WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Razom for Ukraine and its partners in the American Coalition for Ukraine will convene the Ukraine Action Summit on April 23-25, 2023 in Washington, D.C. The Ukraine Action Summit consists of Congressional meetings, advocacy workshops, and panel discussions, which will bring together constituents and organizations from the Ukrainian community and beyond to urge elected officials to provide critical continued support for Ukraine in response to the Russian full-scale invasion. This is the second Ukraine Action Summit, following a convening in September 2022.
With over 320 advocates from across the country in attendance from over 34 states, 58 partner organizations represented, and dozens of planned meetings with members of the U.S. House and Senate, the Summit will be a powerful display of pro-Ukrainian unity from individuals and community groups from across the United States.
Summit participants will be advocating for legislation and resolutions to help Ukraine continue to prevail against Russian aggression, including bills recognizing Ukraine’s invasion as a genocide, classifying the Wagner Group as a foreign terrorist organization, continuing military support, and more. Congressional meetings will take place on Monday April 23 and Tuesday April 25, with an all-participant kick off at 8:30 a.m. on Monday at the Capitol Plaza on the East Side of the Capitol Building.
