Because of outdated and misguided laws that were passed in the 1990s, the U.S. just lost its vote at UNESCO – the UN agency that works to promote education, science, and culture worldwide.
Thanks to these flawed laws, we were also forced to withdraw all of our funding -- 22 percent of UNESCO's total budget -- in 2011 after the Palestinians were granted full UNESCO membership. As a result, the U.S. is now $240 million in arrears, and we're causing serious damage to an organization working to create stability in some of the world's most volatile regions.
Congress has the power to grant President Obama a waiver to get us out of this unfortunate situation – ask your representatives to allow us to maintain our membership in UNESCO by sending the message below.
Help restore our vote at UNESCO
The U.S. just lost its vote in UNESCO, the UN agency charged with promoting education, science, and culture worldwide, because of two misguided and outdated laws.
