Advocacy: U.S.-UN Funding

Tell Congress to Reject the President's Proposed UN Budget Cuts

ForfeitOurSeat_copy   
On March 16, the President released his budget proposal, and it's worse than we thought for the United Nations. If enacted, the UN and its lifesaving agencies would see significant cuts this year. Congress needs to hear us loud and clear: These cuts are unacceptable and cannot happen.
