United Nations Day Creating a Blueprint for a Better Future

About UN Day

In October, the United Nations celebrates its 76th anniversary! To recognize this occasion, UNA-USA is hosting a virtual UN Day program Monday, October 25. We’re convening UN officials, young change-makers, and the most essential part of our movement—you, our members.

For more than seven decades, UNA-USA members have advocated on behalf of the UN and its agencies. Over the last year and a half, we’ve been reminded of how just how interconnected the world is and that a threat anywhere—from the COVID-19 pandemic to intensifying impacts of climate change—is a threat everywhere.

The U.S. should not—and cannot—tackle global challenges alone. Our members know that creating a blueprint for a better future can only be achieved through working in tandem with the UN.

Featured and distinguished speakers include:

  • Rachel Pittman, Executive Director of UNA-USA
  • Paula Boland, UNA-USA National Council Chairperson and Executive Director, UNA-NCA
  • Cynthia Yue, UNA-USA's 10th Youth Observer to the United Nations

Don’t miss out on this special celebration—join us!
