The Hollywood Trident Foundation was formed in 2001 under Jack Palance's leadership to facilitate contact among professionals working in the entertainment industry who are interested in Ukrainian affairs.[1]

Lobby Efforts[edit]

Holodomor[edit]

The Hollywood Trident Foundation works closely with the Ukrainian Genocide Famine Foundation to interview film survivors of the Holodomor. Peter Baristow reports: "When I came to Chicago last year to interview survivors of the Holodomor, I came with childhood memories of tears - the tears cried by my mother as she remembered how her brothers and sisters died of starvation."[2]

Ukrainian Election[edit]

Members of the Foundation and others petitioned for a fair, transparent and fully internationally monitored election in Ukraine on December 26, 2004.[3]
