Early in 1947 an illustrious group of leaders in business, legal, religious and civic affairs organized the Utah Association for the United Nations (UAUN). Today, this organization is known as United Nations Associaiton of Utah (UNAU). UNAU falls under the umbrella of the United Nations Association – United States of American.
UNA-USA is a membership organization dedicated to inform, inspire, and mobilize the American people to support the ideals and vital work of the United Nations. For 70 years UNA-USA has worked to accomplish its mission through its national network of Chapters, youth engagement, advocacy efforts, education programs, and public events. UNA-USA is a program of the United Nations Foundation. UNA-USA and its sister organization the Better World Campaign represent the single largest network of advocates and supporters of the United Nations in the world.
With your support, UNA-USA continues to help the United Nations achieve its vital mission during a time when it is needed most. We know the UN is the only global body capable of bringing countries and sectors together to address the world’s most difficult challenges:
- saving lives from disaster and disease;
- advancing human rights for all;
- and promoting development while protecting our planet.
