United Nations Association Greater Seattle Chapter

Annual Community Programs

UNA Seattle hosts two important events each year to honor the work of citizens of the world, at the United Nations and at the local level.

  • United Nations Day – October 24

    In a world of increasing tensions, the founding of the United Nations on October 24, 1945 gains in importance. In Seattle we celebrate this anniversary through an annual luncheon with special guests speaking on pressing global issues.

  • Human Rights Day – December 10

    For the last fifty years, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has helped to protect the rights of women, children, refuges, minorities, indigenous peoples, and others against torture and racial discrimination. Each year, the Seattle UNA Chapter celebrates the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration by recognizing members of the Northwest community who have been working to promote human rights.
