75 years ago, the protection of human rights was a key purpose in the founding of the United Nations. Today, here in the U.S., the human rights of Black Americans are under threat. Join our efforts to end racial injustice, oppression, and institutionalized racism in America.

Global Engagement Online Series

The Global Engagement Online Series (“GEOS”) is a virtual alternative to our 2020 Global Engagement Summit which will keep you inspired, informed, and connected to the UN this year. We will bring you to the center of global problem solving, using technology and online meetings to ensure we are doing our part to mitigate public health risks. You can count on the GEOS series to bring you unique discussions with global issues experts — all while we practice safe social-distancing. 


The Global Engagement Online Series will provide a forum for us to celebrate and acknowledge the UN’s 75th anniversary and hear expert perspectives as we engage our communities in the UN75 campaign to shape a brighter future. For more than 75 years, UNA-USA has never passed up an opportunity to advocate for change in the face of challenge. We hope to see you online!
