UNA-USA and the Better World Campaign Ask Congress and Biden Administration to Expedite Senate Confirmation of Nominees for Diplomatic Posts
On November 12, the Better World Campaign and UNA-USA sent a letter to Congress and the Biden Administration asking that they continue to work to expedite Senate confirmation of nominees for critical diplomatic posts dealing with America’s relationship with international organizations. These include Amb. Michele Sison to be Asst. Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs, Bathsheba Crocker to be U.S. Ambassador to the UN in Geneva, Chris Lu to be U.S. Ambassador to the UN for Management and Reform, Lisa Carty to be U.S. Ambassador to the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), Chesley Sullenberger to be U.S. Ambassador to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), and Amb. Laura Holgate to be U.S. Ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The letter was sent to Senate Majority Leader Schumer, as well as Secretary of State Blinken and National Security Advisor Sullivan.
In the letter, we state that confirming these nominees is a critical step toward allowing America to fully resume its leadership role on the world stage, and we hope they will be brought up for a vote on the Senate floor as quickly as possible.
