Razom is an organization of individuals who come together to support the development of a prosperous, democratic and sovereign Ukraine.
It grew out of the peaceful protests in Ukraine in late-2013 when the Revolution of Dignity brought millions of people to the streets in the freezing cold to remove the corrupt administration of the sitting president. Since then, the Russian Federation invaded the country, occupied the Crimean peninsula and continues to fund violence in the eastern regions of Ukraine.
A democratically elected government is now implementing difficult economic and political reform and the community of Western nations is providing support. Razom believes deeply in the enormous potential of dedicated volunteers around the world united by a single goal: to realize a free and democratic Ukraine. Razom uses powerful social networking tools to unite a global network of individuals, institutions and organizations into a coordinated effort supporting this shared goal.
Razom volunteers work in the US and in Ukraine to provide emergency relief and to support civil society in Ukraine while also promoting community dialogue and public education throughout the US and Europe.
In a rather short time, Razom has been able to launch and complete projects with significant impact by collaborating with organizations and individuals throughout the globe. By using social media and keeping a relentless focus on a bias towards action, Razom blends the tenants of activism with a respect for organization.
Razom is registered 501(c)3 non-profit in the United States. Board members meet every other week to keep the organization growing. You can find us at events we organize, promote, or participate in several times a week.
