The Charter of the United Nations is the foundational treaty of the international organization, the United Nations, and was signed at the War Memorial and Performing Arts Center in San Francisco, United States, on 26 June 1945, by 50 of the 51 original member countries. The UN still considers the San Francisco community to be an important laboratory of innovation in social justice, development and peace, and we continue to drive thought leadership nationally in grass roots global impact.

So, what is the UNA versus the UN?
The United Nations Association of San Francisco (UNA-SF) is the San Francisco chapter of the United Nations Association of the United States of America (UNA-USA), a national, nonpartisan, and nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing US participation in the United Nations system and to strengthening that system as it seeks to define and carry out its mission.
