Start Planning for UN Day
UNA-USAâ€™s UN Day 2013 theme is â€śPartnerships for Global Progressâ€ť. The theme supports our nationwide celebration of the collaborative efforts of UN member states, and encourages our Chapters to forge local partnerships in support of the principles and vital work of the United Nations. UN Day is a great opportunity to build relationships that will strengthen your Chapterâ€™s grassroots presence in the community.
