The United Nations Association of Greater Kansas City represent members in western Missouri and eastern Kansas. We are dedicated to educating, inspiring and mobilizing the Greater Kansas City Area to support the principles and vital work of the United Nations, strengthening the United Nations system, promoting constructive United States leadership in that system and achieving the goals of the United Nations Charter. Our chapter meets each month at the Kaufman Foundation and has established tremendous programs in support of the U.N. including the Mayor’s United Nations Day Dinner (a Kansas City tradition since 1972), the U.N. Peacekeepers Roundtable, and programs on the Post 2015 Development Goals. The UNA Women’s Committee’s is grounded in the same vision as UN Women which works for the: elimination of discrimination against women and girls; empowerment of women; and achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. Our energetic Young Professionals Group has promoted U.N. programs relating to children and refugees. Join us as we expand these initiatives and launch new activities to educate our community on the essential work of the United Nations.
