The Ukraine Action Summit held on April 12-16, 2024 in Washington, D.C., was a fantastic occasion of unity and advocacy. UCU Foundation CEO Annetta Hewko and Chief Development Officer Alex Kuzma met with many supporters and activists from all over the country. They rallied to lend their voices to the idea that it is time to put people’s lives ahead of politics. The 2-day Summit reminded us all about the power of coming together for a common cause.
