The mission of the UNA-USA is to inform, inspire, and mobilize the American public to support the principles and critical work of the United Nations system through its many agencies and programs.
The UN is the one organization addressing the world's most pressing challenges, be it conflict, poverty, disease, climate change or human rights violations. The UN provides a platform for international cooperation. To this end we advocate for strong US support and leadership within the UN.
