April 23rd-25th, 2023

Cactus and Tryzub led a 5-person delegation to the second Ukraine Action Summit that took place in Washington, DC. The delegation met with the 9 Arizona representatives and both senators or their staff in as part of a larger advocacy effort for Ukraine. We advocated for designating the Wagner group as an FTO, acknowledging Russian aggression as genocide,  seized Russian asset transfer and continued military aid to Ukraine, including F-16 fighter jets.

US-based companies like MARS, Align Technology, TGI Fridays and hundreds of others continue to operate in Russia as usual and consequently fueling the Russian war machine.
