Supports United Nations

Dear Editor:

A new poll out this week has found that nearly 9 in 10 voters believe it's important for the U.S. to maintain an active role in the United Nations. I’m one of them.

This new poll show that Americans overwhelmingly support the U.N.’s work, from overseeing the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons, to building peace in countries emerging from conflict, to improving access to vaccines globally. The findings were released by the Better World Campaign, an organization that works to strengthen the U.S.-U.N. relationship.

The U.N. serves our own national security and foreign policy interests in a big way. By taking an active role in the U.N., U.S. leaders can ensure that American priorities are heard on the world's stage, including advancing democracy, human rights, and emergency humanitarian aid in times of need. These findings should resonate with all of us … especially our elected officials.

Sincerely,

Benjamin Richman
