United Nations Association of the USA Re-Launches Hawaii Island Chapter

The United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA) is re-launching its Hawaii Island Chapter today, at the Chapter’s Annual Meeting. UNA-USA Executive Director Patrick Madden is speaking at the re-launch, joining supporters of the UN from across the State of Hawaii for a day of Chapter building, learning, and networking.

United Nations Foundation“The re-launch of the Hawaii Island Chapter strengthens the already robust voice that UNA-USA has in the Pacific. Citizens in Hawaii help make up the more than eight in 10 Americans who believe it is important for the U.S. to stand by the UN in its efforts to lead the way in addressing the world’s urgent global conversations and crises. We are looking forward to the Hawaii Island Chapter continuing in its integral role in telling the UN’s story in its community.”

The Hawaii Island Chapter’s Annual Meeting is being held at the Hilo Yacht Club. Madden is delivering remarks addressing gender issues as UNA-USA Chapters prepare to celebrate International Women’s Day around the country. The Chapter meeting will honor the late Helene Hale, who brought new life to the Hawaii Island Chapter in Hilo.

“Today we gather together as Americans, and as people of Hawaii, in support of the vital work the United Nations performs every day,” said Hawaii Island Chapter President Ruth Larkin. “There is much support for the world’s most important international organization on the island; our Chapter has done great work in support of the UN to date, and we’re looking forward to a robust future of engagement.”
