WORKING TOWARDS A BRIGHTER FUTURE
At the United Nations Association of Boulder County, we’re raising funds and promoting initiatives to serve the people who need them most. We believe in taking action with urgency in order to raise public awareness about some of the most pressing issues facing today’s society.
We envision a world in which humanity is spared the scourge of war, human rights are honored, the environment is protected, and the U.S. is a constructive member of the United Nations for the well-being of all humankind.
The UNA Boulder County Chapter keeps Boulder County residents informed on international issues and the efforts of the UN to promote peace, prosperity, and health. Our goal is to increase local participation in UNA activities, awareness of the role of the UN in our daily lives, and advocacy for the work of the United Nations
UNA-USA is dedicated to strengthening the United Nations system, the role of the U.S. in that system, and to promoting multilateral efforts to advance the goals of the United Nations Charter.
UNA-USA is a part of the UN Foundation founded by Ted Turner with the goal of "building bridges" to solve global problems. The Foundation supports the work of the UN through its Better World Campaign. The Foundation works on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals and promotes human rights.
The UNA-BC is proud to announce our work with Masjid Ikhlas Mosque in connecting people with internet and phone service. This initiative assists Afghan refugees in signing up for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) and the Lifeline program for phone service to ensure they have more accessibility to internet-based resources.
This population faces challenges with language barriers, income restrictions, and transportation. Broadband is a vital resource in an increasingly digital world and those without it are at a disadvantage for schooling, searching for jobs, remote work, telehealth, and keeping in touch with family and friends. The Lifeline program serves many of the same purposes as ACP-maintaining connections with family and loved ones, job opportunities, and for emergencies.
This project aligns with the Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion (DEA&I) Task Force of the United Nation Association which strives to advance the interests of all individuals to ensure a more just and equitable world. It also aligns with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations relating to ending poverty, promoting good health and well-being, inclusive and equitable quality education, sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth through decent work and economic growth, and reduced inequalities.
