Why Do You Support the
United Nations Association?
Over the course of the last few months (beginning in the fall of 2011), we have
been asking our Oklahoma members and friends ...

"Why do you support the United Nations Association?"  

Here is a sampling of the responses we have heard:

To instill the importance of respect for diversity throughout the world.

I support the UNA to learn what is going on internationally toward UN goals,
to meet like-minded people, and to meet some foreign persons.  

I believe in the purpose of the UNA.  I love everything they stand for.

Common sense and New Testament teaching.

It helps support the Oneness of Humankind.  

I'm still learning.

It is time for the world to grow up and unite.

As a child, UNICEF interested me.  I am upset about US not supporting

Every citizen should be a part of the global movement towards justice &
peaceful coexistence.  

The best approach to a better world!

I think countries must work together & try, as much as possible, to
"be as one."

Similar beliefs as my own.  Want things to be better for my kids.

Because I support human rights for all.

To try to get out the good word about the wonderful things the UN does --
most Oklahomans hear only negative things about the UN from others
in Oklahoma.  

We also asked the people in our sample a question
about the basic purposes that are expressed in the
United Nations Charter.  

"Of these values, which do you support most enthusiastically?"  

The results so far:

To save succeeding generations from the scourge of war.
12 votes ... 75%

To reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights.
15 votes ... 93%

To establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations
arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained.  
13 votes ... 81%

To promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom.  
15 votes ... 93%
