United Nations Association of Northern Colorado



The United States supports the United Nations because we think it’s an investment in our own security,
and we think it’s a necessary venue for us to discuss differences and try to hammer out compromises with other countries.”
~ Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,
speaking at the 2009 UNA-NCA Model UN Conference
