Vision Statement:
Now more than ever before, we need the US to work closely with the UN and the American people to understand that they can both participate in and benefit from the work of the UN. I have been proud to work with the UNA-NCA through program leadership on the Human Rights Committee and in pursuit of achieving success in the implementation of global human rights--and to me, the global always comes back to the local. In joining the board, I look forward to contributing to the strategic vision of the UNA-NCA and helping to develop and cultivate partnerships with people and organizations in our area, strengthening UNA-NCA and increasing visibility of both the organization and the issues we tackle here.
