American Association of University Women, San Francisco
AAUW has been empowering women as individuals and as a community since 1881. For more than 130 years, we have worked together as a national grassroots organization to improve the lives of millions of women and their families. AAUW-SF is committed to supporting our diverse community by increasing opportunities for women and girls, initiating collaborations and mentorships and providing leadership for community impact.

Bay Area Humanists
Bay Area Humanists (BAH) is a local chapter of the American Humanist Association (AHA) and our purpose is to promote humanism: an ethical, democratic, naturalistic lifestance that prioritizes reason, scientific and critical thinking, and a system of humanist ethics and secular values as a rational alternative to those based on religion.

Democratic World Federalists
The Democratic World Federalists support the formation of a global government, elected by the people of the world, with local problems solved locally, national problems solved nationally and global problems solved globally.

SF Bay Area PSR
Guided by the expertise of medicine and public health, SF Bay Area Physicians for Social Responsibility works to protect human life from the gravest threats to health and survival. Consequently, we promote public policies that protect human health from the threats of nuclear war and other weapons of mass destruction, global environmental degradation, climate change, the epidemic of gun violence, and other social injustices in our society today.

SF Waldorf High School Model UN Club
The San Francisco Waldorf High School Model United Nations Team (SFWMUN) is a platform for students to become educated on topics such as diplomacy, public speaking, international affairs as well as conventional and moderated debate. We differ from most traditional speaking consortium teams because in addition to being competitive in debate committee and persuasively representing the views of numerous nations, we also share an interest in the role of the United Nations. Because we are located in San Francisco, a politically active city and the one where on June 26, 1945, the United Nations Charter was signed and adopted, being a member of the Council of Organizations is an excellent opportunity for our club to become further involved in this community centered around public support. We look forward to advocating for the sustained role of the United Nations.


Promoting Civic Principles & Ideals of Good Will & Peace™

"STAR ALLIANCE CAMPAIGN 20/20 • FRIENDSHIP EARTH" aims to help people view the world with more accurate "20/20" Vision, and at the same time to raise their individual and collective aspirations to a higher level. We hope to share these positive, civic, ethical ideals with 20% of Earth's population by 2020! Goodwill comes before peace. This is the threshold of understanding across which humanity must now pass.

UNA-USA - San Francisco Chapter
UNA-USA - San Francisco is a local chapter of UNA-USA, and is dedicated to educating, inspiring and mobilizing Americans to support the principles and vital work of the United Nations toward achieving the goals of the United Nations Charter.
