Wed., Dec. 21 at 10 AM, attend online More Than War: Defining Ukraine While
Defying Russia. Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine has displaced millions
and caused tremendous hardship and dislocation. But Ukrainians have pushed to
strengthen their national identity while under threat from Moscow and make
their country better even during war. Some businesses have managed to attract
investment when others said it was impossible; Ukraine’s civil society has
pushed through real reforms to curb corruption; Ukrainian cooks astonish world
audiences with their clever new riffs on old recipes; and writers and literary
figures have moved from the novel to the newspaper to capture societal changes.
What have Ukrainians been doing to maintain
their national identity and a semblance of everyday life during the war? What
stories of everyday heroism and ingenuity inspire a nation during this time of
crisis? The Atlantic Council is hosting Melinda Haring, deputy director of the
Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center as the moderator of a panel discussion
with Yuriy Fylyuk, chief executive officer of
Promprylad.Renovation, Yevhen Hlibovytsky, partner at Ukrainian consulting
firm Pro.mova, acclaimed Ukrainian author Andrei Kurkov, and Mykhailo
Zhernakov, co-founder of DEJURE Foundation. RSVP at https://www.atlanticcouncil.org/event/more-than-war/.
Shut down Berks Coalition [firstname.lastname@example.org] hopes you will join the
demonstration on Wed., Dec. 21 at noon at an ICE office, 114 N. 8th St.,

34] – Melissa Nussbaum Freeman [email@example.com]

racism on the fourth night of Hanukkah. Light the candles and rededicate

35] – Washington’s
New National Security Strategy: Seeking to Reinforce U.S. Hegemony will be
discussed on Wed., Dec. 21 from 7 to8 PMEST.The catastrophic Ukraine War is about much more
than Ukraine. As the recently released U.S. National Security Strategy tells
us, “The post-Cold War era is definitely over, and competition is underway
between the major powers to shape what comes next.” The war is a primary front in
the global competition for power and privilege. Even as Russia finds itself
increasingly on the defensive, the current moment bears a deeply disturbing
resemblance to the period before the First World War that ushered in the
“American Century” and the Soviet revolution: competition between rising and
declining imperialist powers, arms races with new technologies, complicated
alliance structures, economic competition and cooperation, wild card actors,
and territorial disputes.
36] – Molly Amster [firstname.lastname@example.org] is inviting you on
Wed., Dec. 21 at 7:30 PM to a Jews United for

The Letter tells the story of a journey to Rome of frontline leaders to discuss the encyclical
letter Laudato Si’ with Pope Francis. The exclusive dialogue with the Pope,
included in the film, offers a revealing insight into the personal history of
Pope Francis and stories never seen since he became the Bishop of Rome.
