We did it: Razom Annual Meeting 2016!

Razom held its second annual meeting on Saturday, July 25th in New York City. More than 140 guests attended #Razom2years who learned about the organization’s progress and six initiatives, including: Razom IT, Razom Culture, Razom Think with UkrOko.org, Reformers without Borders, Razom Aid with Toy Drive, and Razom Partners. “I was so impressed to see so many new faces in the room,” said Razom Board Member, Dora Chomiak. “Clearly this shows that, even though the headlines may be off the front pages, the drive that brought Razom volunteers together in 2014 is still relevant today.”


The schedule of the day was jam packed but the energy in the room never subsided. Given that Razom’s initiatives span different fields, there were many projects people could learn about, provide their feedback and expertise on, and volunteer for. Midway through the event, everyone split up into discussions at the six initiative breakout tables. The event also featured a team building exercise led by Dianna Derhak, a breakthrough coach, workshop and retreat facilitator.


After having dinner in smaller groups around the East Village, the guests regrouped for a Razom Culture program that started with a video installation by Sashko Danylenko and included music performances by Roman Bardun Trio, Letters to Nepal, and pianist Alex Pryrodny, and a fashion show by Ira Lysa.


The Razom Annual Meeting was made possible by the many hours of work donated by its volunteers and by the generous support of Self Reliance (NY) Federal Credit Union, Veselka Restaurant, and East Village Meat Market.


Until the next time!
