Vision Statement

It is imperative that the citizens of the United States constructively engage with the United Nations and its system of cooperation and collaboration across national boundaries. Such engagement fosters a truer understanding of global citizenship, and subsequently develops within them a genuine concern for all peoples of the world. By educating individuals about their power to bring about change through the UN system, we will be better prepared for the challenges and open to the possibilities that emerge within our global community. Ever-increasing globalization demands a response. To that end, we must facilitate education in global citizenship. I seek to further the work of UNA-NCA by extending it to communities of citizens and immigrants not reached effectively.
