UNA-USA 2018 Leadership Summit | Print |

About the Leadership Summit

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.

Hosted at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC, from June 10-12, 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. Here are just a few of the incredible speakers you can expect to hear from at the Summit: 

  • Andrew Gilmour, UN Assistant Secretary General for Human Rights
  • Robert Skinner, Executive Director, United Nations Information Center
  • Munira Khalif, U.S. Youth Observer to the UN

If you are looking for an opportunity to learn from the experts, and tell Congress how important the UN is to you, this is it!
