The Episcopal Church and the United Nations

The Episcopal Church and the United Nations

Episcopalians have been engaging with the United Nations (UN) since its inception in 1945. They participate in many different ways: as UN staff, as representatives of member states, as representatives of civil society organizations. representatives, or simply by learning from the UN or attending UN events. In their local churches, dioceses and communities, Episcopalians engage with the UN by learning about issues being discussed at the UN, by contributing their expertise to the UN when possible, and by creating an understanding of the link between our local concerns and the global community of which we are all a vital part.
