United Nations Association of the United States of America is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to building understanding of and support for the ideals and vital work of the United Nations among American people.

In addition, UNA-USA’s highly regarded policy and advocacy programs stress the importance of nations working together and the need for American leadership at the United Nations. The association is affiliated with the World Federation of United Nations Associations, which was established in 1946 as a public movement for the UN.


The Western North Carolina Chapter was founded in the 1950's when Eleanor Roosevelt, a fan of the UN and UNA, inspired the founding of a chapter.
