An Evangelical Voice at United Nations
Serving a constituency of some 600 million evangelical Christians, the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) is uniquely positioned to represent an evangelical voice at the United Nations (UN). Since the relocation of its Headquarters to New York in 2010, the WEA has increased its engagement at the UN promoting peace and reconciliation, advocating for the poor and needy, and also communicating evangelical beliefs and values.
The WEA holds Special Consultative Status in the Economic and Social Council of the UN (ECOSOC) which serves as the central forum for discussing international economic and social issues, and for formulating policy recommendations addressed to Member States and the United Nations system.
The WEA is also accredited to the UN Department of Public Information.
