About the report findings
Through a series of virtual consultations, UNA-USA aimed to elevate American perspectives to answer the UN’s three big questions:
To help mark the 75th anniversary of the United Nations, UN Secretary-General António Guterres launched UN75 to gather ideas and opinions from people everywhere. The United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA) gathered Americans’ voices from all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico in order to understand what Americans think about the current and future state of the world.
