                                      Your Connection to the United Nations

The United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA) wants all Americans to understand the vital work of the United Nations. Membership to UNA-USA is your connection to the UN. As a member, you receive exclusive web content, invitations to events at the United Nations, and the U.S. Department of State, and special programming through local Chapters. UNA-USA members and their Chapters work with their local communities and elected officials to inform, inspire, and mobilize Americans to support the principles and vital work of the UN.  Member categories include adults,  middle and high school students, college students, and young professionals.

UNA-Houston members have the opportunity to serve on committees as well as attend various programs and participate in many projects that address global issues via local action in the Houston area. Motto: Think globally. Act locally.
