United Nations Association
- San Francisco
The UNA-SF much enjoyed celebrating UN Day on October 23rd, 2011, and the "Voices of Humanity" project as a new social media for global activism. With about 120 attendees and good media coverage, we raised awareness for global issues in the community, and created a place where everyone has a voice. See the event page on facebook. You can still join us online for our continuing journey.

For the online portion of our event, we elected a message addressed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. This message is detailed below. We hope to have the message delivered to the Secretary General and to receive a response. Going forward our next target is to elect a message to the Executive Director of UN Women, Michelle Bachelet for International Women's Day this coming Summer, 2012.
At the UN Day event in San Francisco, the authors of the nine national winners, with the flag of their country in hand, simultaneously read all the elected national messages in a wonderful chaotic burst! Following the chaos, the one message elected to represent the world was be read by its author standing by the UN flag. This message represented the order the world needs to come from the current chaos. Video will be available soon.
