Each year, the San Diego Chapter of the UNA commemorates the founding of the United Nations (UN Day), hosting high level speakers from the US State Department, (e.g. Stephen O’Dowd, Director of Economic & Development Affairs); UN Officials, (e.g. Stephane Dujarric, Spokesperson for UN Secretary General) and influential multi-national NGOs (e.g. Chief Operating Officer, Carrie Hessler-Radelet for Project Concern International), to celebrate our broader community’s efforts as contributing global citizens.
Join us this year as we commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), specifically Article 1: “…everyone should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood”. On Saturday, October 27, 2018 our program will link the health of planet earth and our immediate environment with the need to access safe, affordable and equitable primary health care services.
