2021 Week of Action

June 6 - June 11

Organized by UNA-USA

Week of Action

June 6-11, 2021

Register

This summer, you’ll have the opportunity to speak directly with your Members of Congress to urge them to support fully funding our UN dues and maintaining strong U.S. leadership at the UN during our virtual Week of Action June 6-11! With two days of programming and time devoted to meeting with your elected officials, this is a great opportunity to fine-tune your advocacy skills and speak up for the UN’s lifesaving work.

Over the last few months, the Biden-Harris Administration has taken initial steps to reaffirm our country’s commitment to global engagement and to strengthen our relationship with the UN, such as halting our intent to withdraw from the World Health Organization and rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement. And while we celebrate these recent wins, we know there’s more work to do. The U.S. currently owes $1 billion in unpaid dues to the UN and UN Peacekeeping, which threatens our country’s credibility and our ability to achieve key foreign policy objectives.

The stakes are high, but with your help, we can get the U.S. off the sidelines and #GetUSBack to working with the rest of the world in building a better global future.

All UNA-USA members are eligible to participate in Week of Action. Not yet a member? Activate your UNA-USA membership today!
