Gain Global Leadership Skills at the United Nations Association Leadership Summit (Scholarships Available)
It matters now more than ever that we make our voices heard to protect the vital work of the United Nations. With proposed bills in Congress aimed at either dramatically reducing US funding for the UN or withdrawing our country entirely from the global body, the UNA-USA community must come together and fight for what we know is right: Standing with refugees; demanding equality for women; protecting LGBT rights; combatting climate change; working for peace; and more. The United Nations Association of the USA will host its annual Leadership Summit at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC, from June 10-12. There you’ll meet with high-ranking U.S. Government and UN officials, learn from global experts, gain invaluable tools to bring back home for chapter sustainability, and urge Congress to stand with the UN. If you are looking for an opportunity to tell Congress how important the UN is to you, this is it!
