The world needs the UN. The UN needs YOU.

The United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA) is a movement of Americans who believe that our interests and values can best be advanced by standing with the planet’s only truly universal institution: The United Nations. We stand up for the UN so the UN can keep standing up for the world. Will you join us?

The +1 Membership Campaign encourages UNA-USA members to invite a friend, or several, to join UNA-USA and grow our network to support the lifesaving work of the United Nations. The campaign runs from September 23 – October 24, ending on UN Day, and is open to all members: community chapter members, youth members, and members-at-large.

Global Goals Week

The countries of the United Nations made a universal promise to leave no one behind in achieving a peaceful and prosperous world by 2030. Global Goals Week is a shared commitment between 170+ partners across civil society, business, academia, and the UN system—and UNA-USA is beyond excited to be one of those partners!

Partners work to accelerate action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially during the UN General Assembly High-level Week starting on September 22. It is also an opportunity to speak out as one voice, share ideas and transformative solutions in the fight to recover better from global challenges.

The UNA-USA ICERD Shadow Report

The United Nations Association of the United States of America (UNA-USA) submitted the UNA-USA ICERD Shadow Report to the UN Committee Reviewing the U.S. Periodic Report under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. The report covers issues of racial profiling, justice, hate, homelessness, health, climate, indigenous concerns, amongst others, and presents questions for consideration, along with recommendations, to address the problem.

The DEAI Task Force thanks UNA members who participated in these discussions. We express gratitude to Joshua Cooper, Teta Banks, London Bell, Tatiana Scantlebury, and Angela Zhong for producing the shadow report and invite you to review the findings.
