Who We Are

Established in 1953, UNA-NCA is one of the oldest and largest divisions of the United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA). In 2010, the UN Foundation and UNA-USA announced that they formed a strategic alliance to strengthen the US-UN relationship. With the help of over 2,000 members, volunteers, and supporters in the greater Washington area, UNA-NCA works to build public knowledge, strengthen UN-U.S. relations, and aid the UN in achieving its goals.

Advocacy

We meet with members of Congress and their staff to push for the ratification of essential treaties and resolutions. Our advocacy efforts focus on increasing government support for peacekeeping and assistance related to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Education

Our Global Classrooms® DC program educates almost 3,000 students at local middle and high schools about global issues and organizes the Annual Model UN Conference. On a university level, the Fellows program offers graduate students relevant internships, networking opportunities, academic credit, and educational seminars.

Networking

Committee meetings, happy hour socials, and local events are just a small sample of how UNA-NCA brings together Washington DC residents with shared interests and goals. Our Young Professionals (UNA-NCA YP) program is a great place to gain career experience and connect with others in the industry.

Outreach

We provide workshops, conferences, and seminars on the United Nations and related foreign policy issues. Our e-newsletter, UN Express, sends you exclusive and advanced email notification of important international affairs events sponsored by the UNA-NCA.

Where is the live stream for Sustaining Access to Clean Water in Haiti?
What are we doing to help middle and high school students in the DC area to understand and become involved with the United Nations? Some schools have model UN. Do we do anything to encourage this or contribute in any way? I try to have a program in my church, without much support from the congregation generally, but a longstanding national organization that encourages me. I would like some UNADCA help. When living in Philadelphia, I had much assistance. Is there someone with whom I could talk about this.
