Ukraine can win this war and you can help

Razom Advocacy is a branch of Razom for Ukraine committed to advancing nonpartisan research and policy and to nurturing community engagement across the United States and Ukraine. We work together with experts, policy-makers, and constituents to help build a more democratic and prosperous Ukraine.


Razom Advocacy’s mission is supported by broad networks of supporters, including donors, experts, advocates, and partner organizations. We provide resources and tools for these networks to engage in advocacy.

what we are doing

HOW you can join

Contact Representatives

 

The officials you elected have immense power to help Ukraine win this war and you have the power to ask them for assistance.

 

If you are in the US, you can contact your representatives and senators, as well as the White House.  We have some guides on how to do this, including a sample letter here: US Advocacy Guide

 

If you are outside of the US, the following document provides further information: Global Advocacy Guide

Post to your Social Media

 

Post to Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms.  Sample messages you can use are available here: Advocacy Messaging.

 

We regularly organize collective calls to action such as Twitter storms and telethons.  Sign up for our newsletter below to hear about the next one.

Join Advocacy Team TODAY

Our team is looking for new interns and volunteers. Please apply here: JOIN ADVOCACY TEAM. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Internships above are for the Spring and Summer cycles.

If you’re a community leader or have advocacy expertise, reach out to the team at advocacy@razomforukraine.org.   

what we are asking for

EXPEDITED MILITARY AID

The Russian military is bombarding residential areas and targeting civilians and evacuation zones. Incompletely or belatedly meeting Ukraine’s military needs increases the risk of a long and bloody war of attrition with high civilian casualties, war crimes, and genocide.

 

We ask Congress to work with the Administration to bolster Ukrainian airpower and tank forces, particularly in light of the monumental successes of the recent counteroffensive.

 

Europe will not be stable unless Ukraine prevails against the invasion. The United States must provide more advanced systems and munitions, in particular precision-strike long-range weapons, like ATACMS.

SANCTIONS

We ask members of Congress to strengthen sanctions to
decrease Russia’s capacity to make war, violate international humanitarian laws, and commit atrocities.

 

Sanctions must change incentive structures for individuals involved in carrying out the invasion.

 

The U.S. should target sanctions against material-service providers circumventing the Controlled Sales Regime and support Russian oil price cap efforts underway.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT

The larger-scale economic support is imperative for Ukraine to keep fighting and win. Ukraine currently needs $5B per month to cover essential government services and keep its economy functioning.

MEDICAL SUPPLIES

 

Bulk orders (>300,000) of basic individual first aid kits (IFAKs) are the most pressing medical need.

STATE SPONSOR OF TERRORISM

 

The U.S. must designate Russia a State Sponsor of Terrorism.

Today is #ChildrensDay in Ukraine. This normally joyous celebration of childhood is marred, for the second year in a row, by the tragic toll of Russia’s war in Ukraine, which has claimed the lives of hundreds of children & displaced millions. Here are some statistics on the impact:

-Military actions have killed 502 children & wounded 986. 
-The Russian invasion has caused the displacement of 4.3 million Ukrainian children - more than half of the country’s estimated child population.

One of Russia’s worst war crimes is the forced deportation of Ukrainian children. Ukraine has identified 19,400+ such cases. 

An April Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe  resolution said the systemic deportations are aimed at “annihilating every link to and feature of [the children’s] Ukrainian identity. Russia forcibly re-educates and russifies deported Ukrainian children. A Yale School of Public Health Humanitarian Research Lab report from February 2023 identified 43 facilities in Russia involved in the re-education of children, which is the tip of the iceberg according to the researchers.

No child in Ukraine has been able to escape trauma caused by the war. We’re helping by with projects that do things like provide psychological support for children through Razom With You, and supporting children of Ukrainian military families through Razom Toy Drive. Donate & support our work providing safety, comfort, and joy to the children of Ukraine.

Another way you can help is by asking Congress to support H Res 149 & S Res 158, resolutions demanding justice for Ukrainian children. Russia’s genocidal actions cannot go unpunished.

The actual numbers are much higher ;(

We're continuing to amplifying the voices of advocates for Ukraine and sharing their stories from #ukraineactionsummit, which took place this past April 23-25th.

Today the spotlight is on Arthur Brook — an active member of House of Ukraine and a young reporter at Arthur Brook Reports. He came to the Summit to communicate the importance of Congress supporting Ukraine.Watch an interview with him in a video and check out his full story on American Coalition for Ukraine page. #razomadvocacy #uasadvocate ...

In 2022 Razom and other Ukrainian advocacy groups united to make Ukrainian voices heard on Capitol Hill and beyond. That’s how the American Coalition for Ukraine was created.

To amplify the voices of the Coalition, we’ll be sharing videos of advocates for Ukraine from all over the United States. Our first hero is Yuri Deychakiwsky — an American Navy veteran who is on the Board of Directors of United Help Ukraine and works with US Ukrainian Activists. Yuri started advocating for Ukraine since he was 11 years old and has not stopped since then! He came to the Ukraine Action Summit this past month to network and unite efforts with other advocates. Watch the full story of Yuri in the video. #RazomAdvocacy #UASAdvocates ... See MoreSee Less

Dr. D......very impressive!!!

Yesterday, the world celebrated Mothers Day. 

However, 20,000+ illegally deported Ukrainian children meet this year’s #MothersDay without their mothers and are separated from their families by russia. 

Call your elected representative today and ask them to support House Resolution 149 and Senate Resolution 158 to reunite Ukrainian children with their mothers!

It has been one week since the second Ukraine Action Summit took place in Washington DC. 🤩 

The 300+ advocates are back in their hometowns, continuing their work: following up with their representatives, catching up on the news, and getting in touch with those they’ve met in person. 🤝 

The Razom Advocacy team is reflecting on the Summit both within the team and in our latest blog post. Check it out! 👇

By now, you may have heard about or seen for yourself the latest instance of russian war crimes committed against Ukraine and Ukrainians. Yet again russia has proven that it is a genocidal, terrorist state.
It is shocking and incomprehensible. You may be feeling defeated, helpless, and lost. 
However, there is something you can do to help make sure russia is held accountable and justice is served. Become an advocate for Ukraine.
Being an advocate means sharing information about what russia is doing in Ukraine, showing up to events and demonstrations, talking about Ukraine, giving Ukrainians platforms and amplifying their voices wherever possible. 
And the most powerful advocacy tool - is contacting your representatives in government and advocating for more support for Ukraine. 
Join the Razom advocacy network to be alerted of the next opportunity to contact your US Congress Reps about more support for Ukraine.

We can do this - together, #Razom.
Stay strong.
