United Nations Association of Boulder County

Since 1964, we here at the United Nations Association of Boulder County, have been driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. We aim to maintain international peace and security, protect human rights, deliver humanitarian aid, promote sustainable development, and uphold international law.

UNA Boulder County offers a variety of programs designed to keep Boulder County residents informed on international issues as well as the efforts of various UN agencies to promote peace, prosperity and health. Our goal is to increase local participation in UNA activities, local awareness of the role of the UN in our daily lives, and local advocacy for the work of the United Nations. UNA Boulder is spearheading the Cities for CEDAW campaign to advance gender equality and equity, and advocates for legislation to be adopted that support health and social justice for women and families.

UNA USA envisions a world in which humanity is spared the scourge of war, human rights are honored, the natural environment is protected, and the U.S. is a constructive member of the United Nations to protect the well-being of all humankind. 200 chapters across the United States are dedicated to strengthening the United Nations system, the role of the U.S. in that system and to promoting multilateral efforts to advance the goals of the United Nations Charter.
