What we're about

The Nashville Cordell Hull Chapter was established in 1945, the first of over 200 local chapters of the United Nations Association-USA (UNA-USA). It is part of a national nonprofit, bipartisan organization that supports the work of the United Nations and encourages active civic participation in the most important social and economic issues facing the world today.

Our members believe that the United Nations is essential to a world which is becoming small and increasingly interdependent. Violence, hunger, disease, pollution, poverty, illiteracy, and war impact all people on this planet. The U.N. is the international agency able to cross all boundaries and strives to make our world more livable through cooperation rather than confrontation.

Our chapter holds frequent seminars on current international issues, maintains an office to provide members and the community with information and material relating to the U.N., hosts events celebrating U.N. Day and Human Rights Day, lobbies our legislators on support of the U.N., both its budget and its programs, and promotes the UN in school and community events.

The chapter is named for and honors Tennessee native, longest-serving US Secretary of State, “Father of the United Nations” and Nobel Peace Laureate, Cordell Hull.
