UN Day 2016: One Community, Shared Responsibilities
Last October, thousands gathered at events across the country hosted by UNA-USA Chapters honoring the 70th Anniversary of the ratification of the UN Charter. Chapters in communities across 36 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico brought friends and neighbors together to support the UN and celebrate its ability to find bold solutions to the world’s biggest problems. This year’s theme for UN Day is One Community, Shared Responsibilities, and UNA-USA wanted to leverage its strong and active grassroots network to promote participation by adults, young professionals and youth at the UN and in the world!
