Since 2011, the U.S. has not provided funding to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), putting the agency’s ability to carry out its mandate at risk. While the U.S. has revived its participation in the agency, Congress still needs to meet our financial obligations.
Fully Fund UNESCO
UNESCO promotes education, intercultural dialogue, human rights, innovation and the sciences, the arts, and communication. Ask your elected officials to fully fund the agency today.
I am writing today to ask you to fully fund the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
UNESCO’s mandate covers a vast scope that includes education, intercultural dialogue, human rights, innovation, and the sciences, arts, and communication.
Programs of UNESCO support training and empowering journalists and researchers, protecting cultural heritage sites worldwide, and using the tools of science of protect humankind from emergent concerns like artificial intelligence.
The initiatives of UNESCO are a reflection of American values to defend the integrity and bolster the agency of all individuals. By failing to put our full weight behind UNESCO, we put their critical work at risk and allow countries that don’t share our principles to fill our leadership vacuum.
As my elected official, I hope I can count on you to vote in favor of America’s full support of UNESCO.
