Learn. Connect. Act
Each year the United Nations provides food to 90 million people in 73 countries; vaccinates 58% of the world's children, saving 2.5 million lives a year, promotes maternal health saving the lives of 30 million women a year, and so much more. While the UN is not a perfect institution, it serves a near-perfect purpose: to promote global cooperation to address some of the world's most pressing challenges that no single country can resolve alone.
People across the United States need to know more about the real impact of the United Nations. 120 Chapters across the United States work with their local communities and elected officials to inform, inspire, and mobilize Americans to support the principles and vital work of the UN.
The United Nations needs you to take action!
On January 3, 2013, the 113th session of U.S. Congress will begin. Each year, UNA-USA educates Americans and policymakers on core elements of the U.S.- UN relationship using a pre-determined Advocacy Agenda. UNA-USAâ€™s Advocacy Agenda is set by the Council of Chapters and Regions Steering Committee with direct input from Chapters. The CCR-SC collects Chapter priorities using an online survey. Each Chapter will be asked to submit one survey.
To see a copy of the questions asked on the survey, please click here. To participate in setting the Advocacy Agenda, please contact your local Chapter. All surveys are due to UNA-USA by January 18, 2013. If you have any question, please contact the Membership Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202.887.9040.
