Do you know Priya Desai, the president of our OKC chapter of the United Nations Association? Sure, you do. Maybe you were at a previous UN Association activity where Priya delivered the welcoming remarks. Maybe you were at the “Support Diplomacy” rally at the State Capitol where she inspired the crowd. Priya is the face of UNA-OKC. She is the sparkplug who ignites our UN Association in Oklahoma City.
|Priya represented our chapter at the Earth Walk in
September, 2014. Holding up the other end of our banner
was Jean Farquhar Hubinger.
Priya is looking for a good crowd to enjoy our UN70 Luncheon on Saturday, October 24th.

You’ll hear an inspiring message from Mr. Mike Beard of the UN Foundation and the Better World Campaign. And, that’s not all. We’re also paying honor to our special guest, Dr. Don Betz — president of the University of Central Oklahoma. It’s an event you will not want to miss.

The Time to Act is Now
Watch this short ( < 2 mins ) video on the new Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
15 years ago, the United Nations set out 8 Millennium Development Goals to tackle extreme poverty and improve people’s lives around the world. Today, 700 million people have been lifted from extreme poverty and 9 in 10 children are able to go to primary school in developing regions. We have come a long way, but there is still more to be done. Building on the momentum generated by these goals, we are ready to adopt the new Sustainable Development Agenda. The time to act is now.
