UNA-Dallas Spring Social and Advocacy Training
Beginning our UN Garden
Friday, May 27, 2016, 7:00 p.m

Our second annual spring social and advocacy training will be next week, Friday, May 27, 7 p.m.  Mingle with others and share your story of support for the UN. Learn about ongoing UNA-USA Advocacy efforts as well as exciting new initiatives about to be announced at the Leadership Summit in Washington, DC in June.

One of our members is hosting the spring social. Food (omnivore, vegetarian, and vegan choices) and drinks will be provided. Please RSVP to unausa.dallas@gmail.com, and we will send directions to the event.

Please bring the following:

  • A personal story of the UN. Why did you join UNA? Why is the UN important to you? There will be time to share very brief stories of support for the UN or UNA. If you don’t have a UN story, share one which shows cooperation among nations or diverse people.
  • A potted plant, remembering that some like shade or semi-shade. Bring perennials as well as annuals, or you may want to go together with friends for a small tree. Why bring a plant? The variety and diversity will build a UN garden, first as an example in our host’s garden, demonstrating the challenges inherent in a world organization comprising 193 members, including over 7.5 billion people.  Of course, there is a dream behind it – creating a UN garden/park somewhere in DFW area for the 75th anniversary of the United Nations coming up in 2020.
  • A lawn chair, if possible.
  • A friend to introduce her/him to UNA-USA
