Washington, DC, USA
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:
Rep. Ed Royce, Southern California’s 39th Congressional District and Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee
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!
