Join United Nations Association, Davis Chapter


Dedicated to the same values that led to the creation of the United Nations in 1945:

  • Human rights for all people around the world
  • Combating world poverty
  • Seeking peaceful resolutions of conflict, instead of violence and war
  • Protecting the world’s environment
  • Affiliated with the United Nations Foundation since November, 2010

We are a chapter of approximately 70 members, part of the Northern California Division of UNA-USA that represents 13 chapters.  We are an all-volunteer, low-budget organization, funded primarily through memberships.

Our chapter donated a “Peace Rose Garden” to the Davis community in 1995 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the UN charter in San Francisco.  The Peace Roses are located at 600 A Street and are maintained by UNA members.

Members receive the Sacramento/Davis UNA newsletter by mail or electronically and are encouraged to read the national UNA magazine, The InterDependent, online.

Regular chapter programs include:

  • Annual United Nations Day celebration around October 24
  • Community-wide Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF around Halloween, year-round effort to collect for UNICEF through local UNA/UNICEF bank account (more than $14,500 collected in 2015!)
  • Celebrating the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in early December
  • United Nations Association Film Festival (UNAFF) Traveling Film Festival Davis with human rights documentaries from around the world in March or April
  • National High School Essay Contest on the United Nations, with award ceremony for local participants in February (cancelled for current year because of reorganization)
  • International Film Series on first and third Fridays of the month (except July & August) at International House, continuous since April of 1997
  • Observation of International Day of Peace (September 21)

Membership in UNA-USA does not have to involve a major time commitment: many join simply to become part of the national constituency for positive US leadership in world affairs and to support the ideals of the United Nations.
