President Obama included full funding for the UN regular budget and UN Peacekeeping in his FY 2013 budget proposal. Our work is far from over as Congress begins to review the budget. Urge them to follow the President's lead and support full funding. By paying our dues to the UN, we can:
--Support peacekeeping and peace building in 15 nations, including Sudan and Haiti.
--Strengthen international security, by combating international terrorism and addressing nuclear non-proliferation.
--Prevent and control disease outbreak, including the spread of HIV/AIDS, malaria, and polio.
Tell Congress, the President's request echoes 86% of American voters who believe it is important the United States maintain an active role within the UN. Working together with the UN is vital to achieving peace and security around the world.
Tell your representative today to stand strong with the Obama Administration and support full funding for the UN and UN peacekeeping missions.
