A House Appropriations subcommittee just voted to gut funding for the United Nations to historic lows. Their proposal zeroes out funding for critical UN entities including UN Women, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), and the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) – an organization that's already running dangerously low on resources to help the nearly 4 million children affected by the crisis in Syria.
We can't let this reckless bill become a reality. As the Senate begins debating it, let's show just how many Americans are standing with the UN and its life-saving work around the world.
Ask your Senators to protect funding for the United Nations by sending the message below.
Please protect funding for the United Nations
As you consider the FY'14 State and Foreign Operations Appropriations bill, I urge you to protect funding for the United Nations, and the critical work it does around the world.
