Support collective action. We are not a world of foreigners; we are a world of neighbors whose fates and futures are connected. It’s simple: Divided we fall, united we rise. The only way we’re going to conquer obstacles now or in the future is to embrace our common humanity and work together.”

“Support U.S. leadership globally. … Today’s biggest issues — climate change, nuclear proliferation, terrorism, and more — aren’t confined by borders. They are global in scope and must be global in response. Our country is stronger — and the world is better off — when America partners with others and leads on the international stage. That’s why a key part of the UN Foundation’s work has been to educate and engage Americans, including policy makers in Washington.”

“Go big on big problems. … The biggest threats to humanity today … don’t have simple solutions or they would already be fixed. We have to try to figure them out, though, not only because it’s the right thing to do but also because history tells us that progress is possible when we act. We live in an era of astounding technologies, resources, and knowledge; now we need the will.”
