UNA-NCA Advocacy


What We Do 

The overarching goal of our advocacy efforts is to fulfill our mission to “increase public understanding and support of the United Nations, encourage constructive US leadership in strengthening the United Nations, and prepare present and future leaders to work for a better world, both globally and locally."

The United Nations Association of the National Capital Area (UNA-NCA) collaborates with its parent organization, UNA-USA, as well as the Better World Campaign, to educate and advocate on behalf of a strong partnership between the United States and the United Nations. UNA-NCA serves as a constituent liaison to Members of Congress and their staffs, offering resources on a number of related policies and practices that pertain to the UN's agenda. We connect our members with their Congressional and state legislature representatives, host advocacy workshops, and produce toolkits & issues briefs which can be found here

Our members engage in advocacy in a number of ways, including through content publication on UNA-NCA Snapshots. Members additionally participate in Digital Advocacy, which includes direct mail and email campaigns, phone calls, social media targeted action, and more. Members of UNA-NCA have access to a bi-weekly Advocacy Pulse newsletter and a number of resources on UN-related issues and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. 


Coffee Chats

UNA-NCA Coffee Chats have successfully brought together global, national, and local leadership- as well as hundreds of UN advocates across the country- through this series of dynamic and engaging discussions, all centered on the Sustainable Development Goals. Throughout the year, UNA-NCA will continue to highlight the work of senior leaders across the United Nations, Congress, the private sector and civil society through hour-long virtual roundtables that seek to answer- what are our shared goals? What is the future of sustainable development? Most importantly- how do we keep the spirit of hope alive?
