UCC Statement on International Women’s Day
UCC Vice Presidents Alexandra Chyczij and Andrea Kopylech issued the following statement on International Women’s Day, March 8:
“On International Women’s Day, the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) celebrates the extraordinary contributions that women have made and continue to make to our Ukrainian Canadian community, to Canada and to the struggle for Ukraine’s sovereignty in the face of Russia’s continuing aggression.
We are proud of the fact that many of our provincial councils, local branches and member organizations are led by women. The UCC stands in solidarity with women all over the world in its commitment to gender equality.
Many of the programs and projects undertaken by the UCC are championed by dedicated Ukrainian Canadian women. Today the UCC honours their enormous achievements.”
To continue with our valuable programming, the UCC needs your continued financial support. To find out more on how to support the efforts of the UCC, please see here: http://www.ucc.ca/donate/ways-to-donate/
