WORKING TOWARDS A BRIGHTER FUTURE
At 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. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of others.
We envision a world in which humanity is spared the scourge of war, human rights are honoured, the natural 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 offers a variety of programs designed to keep Boulder County residents informed on international issues and the efforts of various UN agencies to promote peace, prosperity and health. Our goal is to increase local participation in UNA activities, local awareness of the role of the UN in our daily lives, and local advocacy for the work of the United Nations
The UNA-USA is dedicated to strengthening the United Nations system, and the role of the U.S. in that system and to promoting multilateral efforts to advance the goals of the United Nations Charter.
The UNA-USA is a program 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 and its initiatives, such as the Nothing but Nets Campaign and Polio Eradication. The Foundation works on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and promotes universal human rights and biodiversity.

UPCOMING RACIAL JUSTICE CAMPAIGN EVENTS
Join us on the fourth Tuesday of the month for virtual discussions and meetups regarding racial injustice.
The United Nations Association of Boulder County has been moved by the strength of the Black Lives Matter movement and corresponding protests. We understand that systemic racial injustices happen in communities across the world and our region is no different. We recognize our responsibility to take action to help address systemic racial inequity in our county and beyond.
In order to better understand the nature of racial injustice, please join us for a community listening session where we encourage honest discussions about the racial prejudices and barriers in our society. This is an opportunity for our community to grow together and mobilize to fight for equitable policies and actions at home and abroad.
We encourage everyone to attend and share their stories and suggestions. We know that we cannot tell your story and look forward to hearing it from you. We are also interested in hearing your recommendations for actions that our organization can take to advance the cause of racial justice.
