Your Connection to the United Nations
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.

The Greater Lansing UNA, multiple partners and individuals are combining efforts to raise $30,000 this year to help UNHCR fund a classroom for children in Horseed Primary School in Kakuma Refugee Camp in western Kenya. The camp has over 75,000 children, half of whom do not have access to a school. Over $20,490 has been donated since the beginning of the fundraising campaign last October. Please help us reach our goal by donating today! 100% of your donation will go to UNHCR and
will be used to provide education.
