U.S. Dues and UN Reform


Democrats & Republicans

These bipartisan leaders agree that cutting funding won't promote much needed change
America needs the United Nations to help make our world more secure and peaceful.  To realize its full potential, the United Nations badly needs refom and constructive American leadership.  We support the call for major reforms of the United Nations system, and urge America's leaders to work even harder to build international support for its critical agenda.  But America cannot afford to to cut off funding for the United Nations at a time when our nation and the world need it more than ever.
