It was an amazing weekend at the 46th Annual St. George’s Ukrainian Festival in NYC. Razom Lounge presented recent Razom projects, hosted activities and interviews, had incredible Face Box and Ukrainian clay-making experiences, and much more!
In early December, Razom volunteers co-hosted an event with the Ukrainian Institute of America in New York City, marking the five years since the Ukrainian revolution began. The purpose of the event was to bring people together to share their own stories of how Maidan affected them in the year of 2013 and onwards. “Our question here today is ‘where were you in the winter of 2013?

No report can compare to a personal story full of emotions and energy. Four Razom volunteers performed at a storytelling festival in New York City, sharing their stories from the stage with everyone who came to listen.
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.”
