16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence
The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign that kicks off on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day. It was started by activists at the inaugural Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991 and continues to be coordinated each year by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership. It is used as an organizing strategy by individuals and organizations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.

UN commits to staying in Afghanistan, with basic services close to collapse
The flights evacuating civilians from Afghanistan may have come to an end, but a deepening humanitarian crisis remains, UN Secretary-General António Guterres declared on Tuesday, as several senior UN officials restated their commitment to stay and deliver urgently needed supplies to the millions in the country who need humanitarian aid to survive.
“Now more than ever”, said Mr. Guterres, “Afghan children, women and men need the support and solidarity of the international community”.

Sustainable Development Goals
On September 25th 2015, countries of the UN adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.
For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you.
Help us reach our goals!
A Tribute to Lyndon Babcock
Our world benefits in many ways from the lives and contributions of people with the devotion to the common good like Lyndon Babcock. Family, friends and numerous former associates were saddened by news of Lyndon’s death on August 29, 2021. He spent his final months with his devoted partner Maxine (Pat) Nieder, living near a son and daughter in Oregon, and he was surrounded by his loved ones when he passed. Lyndon’s wide range of professional and volunteer activities influenced many lives and affected organizations around the world.
In Memory of Julie Bishop
A gentle and courageous soul has left this earth. Julia W. Bishop passed away peacefully with family by her side on March 2, 2021, a few days before her 95th birthday. She also was a generous donor to local, national, and international groups. Julie was an activist and inspired many with her life of service and her tireless dedication to peace, social justice, and the environment. Julie received at least four recognition awards from GL-UNA for her continuing work to support UNA causes, including one for being the “GLUNA UNICEF Coordinator” for five years in the 1970s.
