NOTHING BUT NETS CAMPAIGN

Join the NET Work that saves lives! Every 60 seconds a child dies from malaria. Yet it's a preventable disease spread by a single mosquito bite.

Team up with All-Star Steph Curry of Golden State Warriors. He donates 3 bed-nets to fight malaria in Africa for every 3-point shot he makes. He just broke the NBA season record with 272 3-pointers, so that's 816 bed nets and the season's not over! To see how you can join him, click here.

The NET Work project in the Bay Area is affiliated with Nothing But Nets, the UN Foundation campaign that has raised $50+ million since 2006 to provide 7 million nets in Africa.

INTER-GENERATIONAL MODEL UN (IGMUN)

Saturday September 27
San Francisco State University

9:00 AM - 5:30 PM

This simulation of the UN has become a flagship program of the 11 UNA chapters in Northern California.  300 people, ages 11-94, participated last year, with rave reviews about the experience.  We're proud of the East Bay's participation among members, Directors and Advisors for the first 3 IGMUNs.  Peace-related challenges are again among 12 topics selected for this September, including the Israeli-Palestinian situation and  human trafficking. (Syria was a topic of last year's "Security Council"). This is an excellent opportunity for both novices and experienced delegates to practice their debate and negotiation skills.
