Who We Are

The United Russian-American Association is an umbrella group of Russian and Russian-speaking citizens of the Former Soviet Union.

Our mission is twofold: to broaden the cultural and social ties of the 70,000+ members of our community with our host community in Greater Houston while supporting activities and services which preserve and maintain our Slavic cultural heritage in our emigre community.

Our objectives are to facilitate the recognition of cultural uniqueness of Russian-speaking community by general public in Houston and to promote Russian culture through educational, cultural and philanthropic activities. It also includes active participation in local charities and events, which promote the common goal to live, work and raise our families together in Houston.

We have extended our connections with several other Russian-speaking organizations.

URAA is a member of International Counsel of Russian Compatriots- MSRS (Moscow, Russia), a member of the Coordination Committee (New York, USA), was delegate in World Russian Forum in 2009, 2010 (Washington, USA), was delegate in Russian World Foundation Assembly in 2009, 2010, and many other events, Forums and Conventions. We are working in the Mayor International Europe Committee (Houston, USA)

What We Do

Although our organization has only been formally established for five years, we as individuals and small groups have worked hundreds of volunteer hours to the cause, which now unites us in URAA.

Our activities are to be funded solely through donations and membership fees; Balls and Disco nights, movie nights, special topic presentations, folk dance performances, discussion groups, festivals and painting exhibitions are only some of these activities, which are planned to attract audiences from American, Russian and other communities represented in the greater Houston area. A partial list of our activities over the past few years include:
