Calls to Action

Читати Українською

We, the undersigned, write from a position of sadness and anger at the general silence of many in our Ukrainian diaspora community toward current events, and we wish to confront the culture of casual racism that pervades many Ukrainian diaspora institutions in North America. 

Ukrainians of all generations, classes, and creeds are no strangers to state and social oppression. We hope that this document encourages solidarity with those Black, Indigenous, and otherwise non-white populations whose oppression is woven into the very fabric of the modern United States and Canada. In the words of Fannie Lou Hamer, “nobody’s free until everybody’s free.”

As a community of people who largely benefit from the racial order of North American societies, we feel compelled to ask our fellow members to reflect and act on the complex ways in which race manifests in the Ukrainian diaspora experience. This is not to diminish the often traumatic lived experiences of many in our community, but to recognize that, despite this trauma, we have often gained from a racial system that recognizes many of us as white people.

This statement is written in support of the ongoing protests to protect Black Lives in North America, sparked by the outrageous murder of George Floyd. We write this also in memory of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Regis Korchinski-Paquet, Tony McDade and countless others, whose senseless deaths are the result of a long history of state and systemic violence against Black Lives. We seek to protect our non-white families and friends and to strengthen our diaspora by making it more welcoming and inclusive to people with a variety of connections to our community.

We write these calls to action to help our community be more equitable by analyzing the prejudices we carry and perpetuate. These calls to action can be used as guidance for how we behave as a community. We recognize our own complicity in the system of racial inequity that persists in North America and write with humility, as individuals who must continue to educate ourselves on the complex ways in which we have benefitted from structures of racism.


The calls to action below will demand earnest reflection and investments of time and, in some cases, money. We seek to initiate movement towards these goals, though we recognize that the process of realization may be slow and arduous. With these calls, we affirm our commitment to advancing racial equity in North America.

This document is modeled after the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action.

We Call on All People of Good Will:

  1. To hold community institutions: schools, youth organizations, religious communities, media outlets, businesses, and cultural establishments accountable to the principles of racial justice. 
  2. To stop dismissing others’ experiences of present-day oppression on account of oppression in Ukraine. While we may claim understanding and empathy, we cannot claim having lived the same experience. Nor are we to belittle the suffering of others. 
  3. To study the role of North American immigrant groups, including our own, in settler colonialism, slavery, westward expansion, Jim Crow, mass incarceration, over-policing, and segregation. 
  4. To become prudent consumers of news media, especially to become aware of the issues affecting our immediate neighbors and surroundings, not only news from Ukraine.
  5. To shop at Black-owned businesses and support local Black-run economic initiatives. 
  6. To establish meaningful personal relationships with non-white neighbors, relatives, colleagues, etc.

We Call on All Community Institutions:

  1. To conduct internal audits to see if their services, support, and membership are extended to non-ethnic Ukrainians or people of mixed heritage.
  2. To implement diversity, equity, and inclusion training, to better serve non-white members of Ukrainian communities, non-white employees, and neighbors. 
  3. To institute policies that hold members, employees, students, etc., who use racist terms or spread hateful ideologies in any language accountable, and to provide spaces and opportunities for learning ways in which racism is harmful.
  4. To make open public calls for reconciliation with the communities displaced by the construction of Ukrainian community buildings, whether it be through the displacing processes of settler colonialism or gentrification. Likewise, Ukrainian-owned buildings that remain in areas of divestment and white flight should be opened to local community groups for events and social services.
  5. To remove racial or ethnic stereotypes in publications, whether positive or negative, or to provide context for historical expressions of these biases. Likewise, to henceforth publish materials and presentations that examine the presence of various ethnic groups and races in Ukraine.
  6. To eliminate artistic presentations that reinforce negative stereotypes. We ask that organizations prioritize sensitivity in their representations of historically marginalized groups, and reject the use of blackface and similar caricatures outright.
  7. To divest retirement funds, life insurance policies, and other funds from private military contractors, small arms manufacturers, and other companies that depend on mass incarceration and prison labor.

The above demands represent concrete and actionable steps Ukrainian communities can take to fight racism and foster greater understanding and solidarity. We have also assembled targeted action items for Ukrainian institutions in North America, which can be viewed here.
