Advocate for the United Nations
In response to proposed legislation to cut U.S. funding for the UN, Better World Campaign President Peter Yeo advises, “Withholding funding from the UN will significantly jeopardize America’s influence and ability to steer the international agenda.” Despite the many benefits of the UN, “U.S. funding for the UN amounts to only 0.1 percent of the total federal budget. Working with our allies through the UN means that the U.S. can share the burden of solving global challenges – and doesn’t need to go it alone.” Read Peter Yeo’s full statement here.
A bipartisan poll confirmed that more than 88 percent of Americans support active engagement at the UN. Furthermore, more than 67 percent of Americans agreed that the U.S. should pay our dues to the UN on time and in full.
Let’s make sure the Senate hears us loud and clear: Active engagement at the UN is in our national security interests. Sign this letter and Tell Your Senators to Fully Fund the United Nations. Learn more about Why Congress Must Oppose Efforts to Withholding Funding to the United Nations.
