Cactus and Tryzub is a multi-purpose resource serving Ukrainian community of Phoenix, AZ and surrounding areas. Here, you can connect to the local Ukrainian community, get involved in volunteer and fundraising opportunities and be informed of cultural and social events. Our mission will evolve with community's needs.

Our current efforts are centered around response to Russia's expanded aggression in Ukraine culminating in a full-scale invasion on Feb 24th, 2022.



Hands down, we want Ukraine to be victorious in this senseless war. Our current focus is on political advocacy, fundraising and Ukraine awareness. If you are hosting a Ukraine support fundraiser and would like a Ukrainian representation at your event, please contact the Cactus and Tryzub team, we are happy to collaborate.
