Advocating U.S. Funding for the UN
We are a leading advocacy voice for a strong, fully-funded UN system. We work with thousands of individuals all over the United States -- and around the world -- to raise the profile of the UN and the challenges it faces. We believe that no one nation should pay all the bills or take all the risks for international peace and security. To that end, we work with the United States and other governments to fully fund the life-saving and life-changing programs of the United Nations. By harnessing the energy of our grassroots supporters, building strong coalitions, and using savvy and targeted communications strategies, we have leveraged Congressional support for increasing funding for the United Nations by more than $1 billion in the past two years.
