2022 Leadership Summit

Every year, we join forces on Capitol Hill to advocate for a strong U.S.-UN partnership and make sure Congress hears our message: We stand with the United Nations.

About the Leadership Summit

Every year, UNA members from across the country convene in Washington, D.C. for the Leadership Summit to advocate for the UN’s work on Capitol Hill. For the first two days of the summit, advocates attended workshops to improve their advocacy skills, connect with other advocates from across the country, and learn from high-ranking officials about how the UN is tackling global challenges. On the final day of the conference, members met with their elected officials in a virtual Lobby Day to make the case for continued U.S. support for the UN.

For the past two years, Leadership Summit has been brought to you as a digital summit, so we are excited to bring to you our new hybrid format summit! Attendees attended fully virtually or came to D.C. in person for the first two days before also going digital for Lobby Day. Wherever attendees were at physically, we were all united under our theme of “US. TOGETHER. FORWARD.” as we fight for a better future.

The 2022 Global Leadership Summit was held June 5-7, 2022 in Washington, D.C. at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center or virtually at HopIn. Check our registration page and click here to view the full schedule.
