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, in providing materials and opportunities to advocate our Members of Congress and their staffs on Capitol Hill. Our members engage in advocacy in a number of ways including through digital advocacy, opinion editorials posted on our blog and sent to members through our weekly newsletter, visits with staff and Members on Capitol Hill, phone calls, direct mail and email campaigns, and more. Members of UNA-NCA have access to advocacy resources including trainings and information on various UN-related issues.

UNA-NCA advocates for and informs our congressional representatives on on critical issues which fall into a number of categories, including U.S.-UN Partnership, Peace and Security, Human Rights, the Economy, and Climate/Environment.

World Refugee Day

In the complex, globalized world we are living in today, security and migration are becoming two concerns which have touched all of us. In many parts of the globe, political unrest and security have threatened the stability of some nations, forcing their nationals to flee to other parts of the globe. This is the case of refugees who have had to escape natural disasters, insecurity and other calamities that threaten their future. Different regions of the world, such as the Middle East and North Africa, as well as the Northern Triangle of Central America, have had their inhabitants leave by the millions. Often times, refugees are not able to return home given that their life could be in threat. For this year's Refugee Day on June 20th, the UNA-NCA is deciding to put on an event to build momentum for refugee relief efforts around the world. Together with the UN Foundation Campaign Nothing But Nets, as well as panelists knowledgeable in the topic, this event will aim to honor refugees on their International Day.
