The UNA-GP is dedicated to educating, inspiring and mobilizing Philadelphia residents and political leaders to support the visions behind the principles and vital work of the United Nations. We seek to establish a citizenry that is cosmopolitan in thinking, universal in action and will celebrate the local diversity of tongues, fashions, cultural expressions and inter-ethnic explorations.

We work towards a global Philadelphia, a city that stands as a beacon of reason around issues that touch the core existence of humanity, from energy issues, demographic tensions, sustainability, and un-acceptable living conditions. Fulfillment of our mission and that of the UNA-USA will enable the USA, and other nations, to redirect billions from spending on weapons and conflict handling to programs promoting conflict prevention, making peace, serving the needs of all human beings and enhancing the creative potential of each. We see the United Nations as an essential tool for these purposes and will work tirelessly towards its popular support. We encourage you to get involved in our work. Join our chapter, learn about multilateralism as a necessary expansion of the traditional foreign policy thinking and start advocating for a truly constructive approach to global politics.

The UNA-GP is a chapter of the United Nations Association of the United States of America (UNA-USA). With over 150 chapters and 150 affiliated national organizations, UNA-USA is our nation’s largest grassroots foreign policy organization building public support for the United Nations.
