The United Nations Association of the U.S.A. Brooklyn Chapter (UNA Brooklyn) is excited to announce the 5th Annual UN Day at Brooklyn Borough Hall and ask that you SAVE THE DATE: October 24, 2019. At our signature event, we bring hundreds of Brooklyn residents and folks throughout the NYC area, to the center of Brooklyn to learn about and celebrate the birth of the UN, and the issues of paramount importance to our nation and world, as well as enjoy a reception with a buffet dinner and live music.Last year, our featured keynote speaker was Stephen Schlesinger, a world-renowned expert on and historian of the United Nations.
We are equally as excited to let you know that our keynote speaker is Rob Berschinski, who is senior vice president for policy with Human Rights First. A former deputy assistant secretary at the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Democracy, Labor and Human Rights in the Obama administration, Mr. Berschinski also served as deputy director of the U.S. Mission to the UN, reporting to Samantha Power, former U.S. Ambassador to the UN.
