UNA-USA Nebraska Chapter
We are Nebraskans supporting the United Nations efforts in peacekeeping, development and human rights, affiliated with the United Nations Association of the USA, a program of the United Nations Foundation. The Nebraska Division (now Chapter) was founded in 1957 under the leadership of Bertha Sellers, who attended the 1945 Conference where the UN was founded. E.N. Thompson, who had been a page at the Conference, and who funded the E.N. Thompson Forum at UNL, was also a member of UNA in Nebraska. Ms Sellers’ friend Eleanor Roosevelt was a guest at the first anniversary meeting.
