About the Summit
Razom, as a member of the American Coalition for Ukraine, will take part in the Fall 2023 Ukraine Action Summit on October 22-24, 2023 in Washington, D.C. The second event of its kind this year, the Ukraine Action Summit consists of Congressional meetings, advocacy workshops, and panel discussion for constituents and organizations from the Ukrainian American community and beyond. At Congressional meetings, advocates will urge elected officials to provide critical continued support for Ukraine in response to the Russian full-scale invasion. Razom is a founding member of the Coalition, which was formed in August 2022.
An all-participant kick off, featuring remarks from Representatives Doug Lamborn and Mike Quigley, will take place on Tuesday, October 24th 8:30am, at the South Panel of the West Front Grassy Area in front of the US Congress building, north of the United States Botanical Gardens.
This year’s Summit will feature over 500 participants from across the country in attendance, from 36 states, representing 97 partner organizations in the American Coalition for Ukraine. Advocates will join 150+ meetings with members of the U.S. House and Senate; a powerful show of pro-Ukrainian unity across the country. This fall’s Summit will include over 100 additional advocates compared to the April 2023 Summit, demonstrating the growth of pro-Ukraine advocacy as the war continues.
Summit participants will be advocating for measures and resolutions to help Ukraine continue to prevail against Russian aggression, including for urgent supplemental funding for Ukraine, expedited long-range weapons deliveries, and for bills to transfer Russian state assets held in the U.S. to Ukraine (REPO Act) and resolutions recognizing Ukraine’s invasion as a genocide (H.Res. 154/S.Res. 72) and condeming Russia’s illegal deportation of Ukraine’s children (H.Res. 149/S. Res.158). Congressional meetings will take place on Monday, October 23rd and Tuesday, October 24th.
