Iowa UNA’s Priority Issues

Tell Congress: Don’t support the Bill to defund the United Nations

Here’s why:

Eliminating or cutting funding to the United Nations will not serve U.S. interests. As we speak, the UN is on the frontlines fighting Al Qaeda affiliates in Mali; verifying Iran’s compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal; vaccinating children against deadly diseases; and leading the international response to global health emergencies like Zika and Ebola. ACT NOW:

The United Nations is indispensable to tackling global challenges. Every day, the UN provides vaccinations to 40 percent of the world’s children, feeds 80 million individuals, and helps 65 million refugees & displaced persons. TAKE ACTION & tell Congress to fund the life-saving work of the UN:


The Iowa United Nations Association is the Iowa affiliate of the United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA). Iowa UNA is a non-profit, non-partisan organization.  We educate Iowans about the work of the United Nations and its importance for Iowa, engage Iowans in campaigns to support the humanitarian work of UN agencies, and advocate for constructive United States leadership in the world body.
