Advocacy Agenda

Our Core Focus Areas

Members of UNA-USA encourage the U.S. to develop and support bilateral and multilateral policies that reinforce U.S. leadership in international affairs and support the United Nations as a vital institution in fostering peace and security. The Advocacy Agenda is set by the Steering Committee of the Council of Chapters and Regions.

UN Funding

Payment of our nation's UN regular budget and peacekeeping dues on time, in full, and without conditions; continued fair share of voluntary contributions to UN organizations.
