Read the whole article but please note the following steps being taken.

First, to build a network of journalists and educators, empowering them to continue writing articles, editorials, and promoting the great travesty of mistruths and lies perpetrated by Walter Duranty.

The goal is to engage at least one top-tier media outlet to cover the campaign with a substantive story. Prominent spokespeople have been enlisted for their support in this massive effort.

Second, to request that the Ukrainian American community, especially students, use social media to promote an awareness campaign to help with media pitching, design work and writing.

Third, announce a social media contest to develop and post Duranty memes with the hashtag #RevokeDurantyPulitzer. Examples of memes are available on the U.S. Holodomor Committee website, under the Duranty revocation tab, and can be found at the following web address:
Fourth, spur a worldwide petition on for the revocation of Duranty’s Pulitzer Prize.

For more information about the campaign, please contact the subcommittee chair at the following email address:


NB –  ANYONE can sign that petition!
