Before calling, be prepared with a short script that covers the following pieces of information:

  • Who are you? Where you are from?

Sample Script: Hi, I’m [your name], a constituent and voter from [your town/county/city, state]. I am a member of the United Nations Association of the USA, a grassroots movement of Americans dedicated to supporting the vital work of the United Nations. My local chapter is UNA [chapter name].

  • Why you are calling?

Sample Script: It’s no secret that the UN helps countries come together to solve global issues. Realizing the tremendous impact that the UN has on our future,  I believe that American interests and values can be best advanced through strong U.S. leadership and engagement on the world stage. As we mark the 75th anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter today, I hope that you will sign-on to Representative Barbara Lee’s resolution—H. Res. 1024—to commemorate this historic day. The U.S. and the UN have made a lot of progress together over the past 75 years. As a founding member of the UN, our country must honor the vital progress that we’ve made. But if we choose to turn our backs, that progress is in danger. Global challenges must be met with global solutions — that’s why I implore you to keep working with the UN during this unprecedented time.
