We are dedicated to educating, inspiring and mobilizing Americans to support the principles and vital work of the United Nations, strengthening the United Nations system, promoting constructive United States leadership in that system and achieving the goals of the United Nations Charter.
The United Nations Association of the United States of America is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to building understanding of and support for the ideals and vital work of the United Nations among American people. Its educational and humanitarian campaigns, including teaching students in urban schools, clearing minefields and providing school-based support for children in African communities that have been hurt by HIV/AIDS, allow people to have a strong influence at a local level.
In addition, UNA-USA’s highly regarded policy and advocacy programs stress the importance of nations working together and the need for American leadership at the United Nations. The association is affiliated with the World Federation of United Nations Associations, which was established in 1946 as a public movement for the UN.
