February 1, 2011

Better World Campaign Executive Director Peter Yeo testified last week before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on the important role played by the United Nations and the value of effective engagement in the international body for the United States.  “Right now, across the globe, the UN stands by America as it works to promote democracy, human rights, and world prosperity," said Yeo, adding that "we need the UN to continue, even hurry, on its current course – straight toward a more stable and prosperous world that serves America’s interests.”
