During the first weekend in May, JBANC’s Lita Juberte had the opportunity to address Latvian-Americans on Ukraine-related issues during the American Latvian Association’s (ALA) annual Congress, held this year in Philadelphia.
During her presentation, Ms. Juberte elaborated on what JBANC has done over the past few months to support Ukraine against Russian aggression.
She stressed that in the current situation, support from everyone is very crucial and she encouraged the participants to work more actively in a unified fashion.
On this point, Ms. Juberte detailed numerous ways how Latvian-Americans can get involved – from writing letters, participating in rallies, organizing meetings with local representatives, and being active on social media. JBANC has been relying heavily on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and its own website to spread information, relay media coverage and to help debunk some of the misinformation emanating from the Kremlin.
Ms. Juberte currently serves as Public Affairs Manager of JBANC.
