COALITION FOR A SECURE AND DEMOCRATIC UKRAINE (CSDU)
U.S. Congress Enjoys a Taste of Ukraine
Washington, DC - The Coalition for a Secure and Democratic Ukraine, along with the Embassy of Ukraine, organized the Ukrainian Table at Taste America 2006 at the U.S. Capitol on July 27. Numerous Members of Congress and their families enjoyed scrumptious traditional Ukrainian food while learning about Ukrainian history, culture, and heritage.
Taste America, now in its 15th year, is a reception hosted for Members of Congress prior to their Congressional Recess. The theme for this year’s event was “E Pluribus Unum.” Other countries featured were Italy, Ireland, Japan, China, Poland, Germany, Spain, Russia and the Organization of American States.
Members of the Coalition for a Secure and Democratic Ukraine which helped organize the event were SigmaBleyzer, the Ukraine-U.S. Business Council, the Ukrainian American Coordinating Council, the Ukrainian Federation of America, the Ukrainian National Women’s League of America, and the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation.
The Coalition for a Secure and Democratic Ukraine is the successor to the Jackson-Vanik Graduation Coalition, and has assigned priority to promoting the U.S. Congress-Verkhovna Rada partnership, supporting Ukraine's integration into the Euro-Atlantic community, and promoting Ukraine's market reform, democratic development, and energy efficiency.
