WELCOME!


"More than ever before in human history, we share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together. And that is why we have the United Nations.”
 Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations




Greater Lansing Chapter of the United Nations Association of the USA is one of more than 160 chapters in the United States and over 1000 chapters in UN member countries around the world. UN Association members are internationally minded people who recognize and support the essential role the United Nations plays in our world.

UNA-USA is a voluntary membership organization with the primary purpose of educating our communities about  the United Nations and to encourage their support of it.  Members are empowered to advocate for their political leaders' support for the vital programs and essential activities of the UN.

Greater Lansing UNA was organized in 1959 by internationally experienced leaders in the community, many of whom were affiliated with Michigan State University. In recent years the chapter has actively partnered with other community organizations including MSU International Studies and Programs, Peace Education Center, Zonta Clubs, Niagara Foundation, various faith communities, and others to support UN initiatives at the local level.

Membership is open and encouraged for all who share the vision of a better world as described in the United Nations Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. You may join our chapter of the UNA today! 

Annual programs and events include:

World Friendship Day
