In response to the unfolding war in Ukraine, the Town of Ashland issues its statement of unity with the Ukrainian people and offers the following list of resources to donate, stay informed, and learn more with education resources.
March 1, 2022- As the war in Ukraine continues to unfold, the Town of Ashland stands in unity with the Ukrainian people as they continue to oppose Putin's flagrant and unsanctioned invasion of their country. Our thoughts continue to be with our Ukrainian and Russian communities in town, which consist of residents, businesses, and employees, many of whom are deeply concerned with family and friends in the region.
While it is difficult for us in Ashland to effectuate change on a global scale, what we can do is model civil behavior and work to peacefully and respectfully resolve our differences while being kind to one another. To that end, we encourage residents to voice their opinions and concerns peacefully and lawfully to oppose Russian aggression.
