WASHINGTON – February marks the fifth anniversary of the culmination of dramatic civil developments in Ukraine during the Revolution of Dignity. To commemorate this historic date, on February 8, the Ukrainian American community, under the auspices of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), will host a half-day conference to honor the Heavenly Hundred – the brave heroes who gave their lives in defense of Ukraine.
The forum, to be held in Room 121 of the Cannon House Office Building of the U.S. Congress from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., will be an opportunity to remember the tragic sacrifice of the Heavenly Hundred and the contribution they made for a freer Ukraine, as well as to discuss the legacy of the Euro-Maidan activists and the Revolution of Dignity, as a whole.
“The Story of the Heavenly Hundred” will feature keynote speakers and two panel discussions, “Witnesses to History” and “Aftermath to Sacrifice,” which will discuss the historical significance of those fateful days in February, five years ago, and the integral role the organized U.S. Ukrainian community has played to assist its ancestral homeland since 2014.
Space is limited, therefore interested persons are asked to register as soon as possible by e-mailing email@example.com.
