An effective way to teach other students about the Holodomor is inviting a speaker that is knowledgeable in this area. If you are unsure of where to start, approaching faculty members or a Ukrainian resource centre within your university is a good first step.

In order to carry out this event effectively, make sure you speak with your USO about a few potential dates and times before officially inviting the speaker to your event. This way you can have a few options available to your guest that your USO members will also be able to attend. Once you have finalized a date and time, make sure to book a room within your university well in advanced in order to make sure you have all the necessary information before you begin advertising.

In the event there is not a Ukrainian faculty or resource centre available, speakers from HREC and UCRDC are available to visit schools and discuss the Holodomor. Workshops are also available. You can visit UCRDC to view exhibits and hear survivor testimonies from archives.

Do not hesitate to reach out to the community! Most individuals will be more than happy to help your USO spread awareness of the Holodomor.
