We thank all for the invaluable contributions, as wrapping up “Ukraine at War: Life in a Time of Fear and Hope” event series:

• The keynote event, featuring a musical performance by Yaryna and Nadia, saw a turnout of over 60 attendees.

• Yaryna Chornohuz @yara_chornohuz delivered a moving speech about her service in the Ukrainian army, followed by a powerful reading of her own poetry.

• The off-campus talk with Jenya and the screening of a climbing film on Ukraine drew about 50 attendees.

• The showing of “20 Days in Mariupol” with over 100 people in attendance.

• The “lunch and learn” events the following day each attracted over 20 participants.

• The panels on Thursday filled the room, with additional seats brought in to accommodate about 60 people each.

Yaryna Chornohuz, an active participant in Ukraine’s decolonization movement, currently serves in the 140th Separate Reconnaissance Battalion of the Marine Corps as a platoon combat medic and scout.

Nadia Tarnawsky, with decades of experience studying Eastern European singing techniques, approaches song as a community-building experience, particularly vital during times of war.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who participated and contributed to the success of the “Ukraine at War: Life in a Time of Fear and Hope” event series.

Your presence, engagement, and support made each event meaningful and impactful. Special thanks to our partners, organizers, speakers, and performers for their dedication and commitment.

Together, we continue to shed light on important issues and foster meaningful conversations.
