Meeting the Moment: The U.S. and the UN in 2023


Each year, the Better World Campaign (BWC) and the United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA) build support for U.S. policies that reinforce U.S. engagement with the United Nations and educate people about the real benefits the U.S. receives through our relationship with the UN. In 2023, we are working with the Biden Administration and 118th Congress to accomplish the following, so that the UN can better address the transnational challenges of the 21st century:


Ensure payment of outstanding arrears and full funding of our nation’s UN regular budget and peacekeeping assessments on time and without conditions


Promote U.S. assistance to UN peacekeeping operations to strengthen each mission’s capabilities in logistics, training, doctrine, and management expertise


Spotlight the value of UN funds, programs, and agencies in advancing U.S. interests


Advance constructive engagement on structural and management reforms at the UN and the continued implementation of ongoing reforms


Advocate for full U.S. engagement with key UN bodies


Encourage action toward achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015


Support U.S. Senate ratification of key multilateral agreements
