Club - United Nations Association at Northeastern University
The United Nations Association of the USA is a grassroots organization that advocates for US leadership at the United Nations (UN). With over 20,000 members and more than 200 chapters across the country, UNA-USA members are united in their commitment to global engagement and their belief that each of us can play a part in advancing the UN’s mission and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As a campus chapter UNA Northeastern advocates for the UN SDGs locally and connects the mission and career opportunities of the UN to our community.
We’re working to build a welcoming community of students who are passionate about international issues. As an organization we come together weekly to learn about and discuss international issues and advocate for change in our community. The SDGs cover a broad range of issues and our focus represents this. Some of our past events, beyond our weekly meetings, have included annual UN Day and Earth Day events, a clothing drive, volunteering in the community, meeting with our representatives, and trips to UN events in New York.
