THANK YOU FOR VISITING OUR WEBSITE! 

WE HOPE THAT YOU FIND IT INTERESTING AND INFORMATIVE. 

BELOW ARE THE RESULTS OF A RECENT POLL ABOUT SUPPORT OF THE UNITED NATIONS IN THE UNITED STATES. 

WE HOPE THAT YOU WILL RETURN TO OUR SITE OFTEN!


SO WHO IN THE U.S. SUPPORTS THE UN?

Year after year, the results of a nationwide poll conducted by the bipartisan research team of Public Opinion Strategies and Hart Research Associates conclude that Americans overwhelmingly support a strong U.S.-UN partnership.

Our latest poll found that 88 percent of Americans support active engagement at the United Nations. Moreover, when studying specific voting blocs, the poll found that 65 percent of Republicans and specifically 58 percent of Trump voters agree the UN is still needed today. Similarly, among millennial voters, 86 percent also agreed with that sentiment, making support for the UN one area that millennials and Trump voters agree on.  (Read the full results at https://betterworldcampaign.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/October-2017-BWC-USUN-Poll-Executive-Summary.pdf)   (Or see full report on the detailed data.)



SYRIA EMERGENCY

"Hell on earth." That's how the UN Secretary-General described the situation in Syria this week. Entire neighborhoods reduced to rubble. Families trapped and hoping to survive another day.

As the conflict in Syria drags on with recent appalling violence in Eastern Ghouta, families displaced by the war are at even greater risk. Despite the immense scale of the crisis, it risks becoming another forgotten emergency.

Brutal and unrelenting bombing continues and the Syrian people are in desperate need. Please send your emergency donation today.

The UN Refugee Agency is on the ground coordinating a massive response throughout the region. With help from people like you, UNHCR is leading efforts to protect and shelter refugees — working across conflict lines to provide critical aid under extremely dangerous circumstances.

Provide safety to millions of refugees and displaced people fleeing violence — send emergency aid now. Your gift will give vulnerable children, women and men help when they need it most.

We don’t have any time to waste.

Adopt-A-Future Fundraising Victory! 

Thanks to the wonderful support shown for the Greater Lansing United Nations Association, we reached our "Adopt-A-Future" fundraising campaign goal.  Partner organizations and individuals contributed a total of $33,116 -  more than our goal of $30,000!  

The Horseed Primary School in the Kakuma Refugee Camp located in western Kenya will now have a new fully-funded classroom.     The United Nations High Commission for Refugees will use the funds along with an equal match from the Educate a Child Fund to meet the educational needs of at least 40 students at the Horseed Primary School for a period of ten years.

Though the GL-UNA goal was reached, the UNHCR STILL NEEDS DONATIONS TO EDUCATE the increasing number of refugee children. WE ARE STILL FUNDRAISING FOR THIS IMPORTANT PURPOSE.   Donations may be made here.    Also, if you and/or your organization want to host a fundraiser for this purpose, please email us at gluna@msu.edu. There are tens of thousands of refugee children in need of educational assistance in the Kakuma Camp alone.  Your donation can make a world of difference in the life of a child.

Our deepest appreciation to the many donors who made this effort a success - and to those who continue to support this effort. Thank you!
