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.
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

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.
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.
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.
