UNA-MN’s advocacy work for many years has focused on reaching out to the Congressional delegation from Minnesota as well as other leaders and the general public in order to strengthen legislation and positions supporting the mission and agenda of the United Nations. The underlying assumption for our advocacy efforts is that pro-UN policies and practices by the US government will promote and enhance the economic, diplomatic and security interests of the United States.
UNA-MN aligns with the national advocacy agenda as outlined by UNA-USA, and on occasion adds issues we feel strongly about. The UNA-USA office also supplies us with data, information, and web-based solutions to support our efforts.
Areas of focus for our advocacy efforts include:
1. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
2. Full and increased funding of the United Nations.
3. Increased peace-keeping and peace-building.
4. Nuclear arms control and disarmament.
5. Refugee protection.
6. UN Reform.
