The United Nations Association of the United States of America (UNA-USA) was founded in 1943 and played a major role in the creation of the UN Charter, its ratification by the US Congress, and in every chapter of the US-UN relationship since the United Nation's founding. Beginning in 1953 Eleanor Roosevelt, recently retired from her role as US Ambassador to the UN General Assembly, began a series of speaking tours to champion the importance of the UN to all Americans, leaving behind a network of UNA-USA chapters in communities and on college campuses.
In 2011, UNA-USA merged with the United Nations Foundation.
Today the UNA-USA is a movement of Americans dedicated to supporting the United Nations and includes over 200 chapters across the country. UNA-USA members are united in their commitment to global engagement and their belief that everyone can play a part in advancing the United Nation's mission and to achieve Sustainable Development Goals.
