It is early spring and that means that it is time to renew your membership in the World Federalist Movement – Canada. Thank you so much to everyone who has already done so. As a member you are supporting the development of more democratic global institutions to assure a peaceful, just and ecologically sustainable world.
At this time, governments and people the world over are coming to terms with the threats and challenges posed by the new coronavirus and its related COVID-19 disease.
And as the UN’s World Health Organization steps up to play a vital role — coordinating global policies and actions, providing accurate, reliable information, and setting standards for appropriate responses — we are reminded yet again how essential is the United Nations system, including its many functional agencies and programmes.
This year, WFMC continues its coordinating role for the UN2020 Campaign. This project is mobilizing support for using the 75th anniversary as a political space where governments and other stakeholders can address the crisis in multilateralism, and seek ways to strengthen global institutions.
Here in Canada, we will also continue to campaign for this country to live up to its commitments to support UN peacekeeping through our Canadians for Peacekeeping campaign and accompanying website, as well as our annual fact sheet.
As a member of the World Federalists you:
- Join a network of like-minded people that are also working towards a more equitable, just and peaceful world
- Access exclusive content, including the print version of WFMC’s biannual Mondial publication
- Have influence within the organization through voting rights in WFMC’s Annual Members Meeting
- Be a part of creating a more peaceful, just and ecologically sustainable world by participating WFMC’s campaigns and sharing in WFMC’s successes
Current members will have received a membership renewal form in the mail, although you can also renew online. There is also the option of donating monthly. (If you would like to make a change to your monthly donation, please contact the National Office.)
At this time, online donations are easier for us to process as we maintain social distance and work from home. Acknowledgements of online donations will not be delayed, but paper receipts and acknowledgements may be.
We are very grateful for your support and voice in our efforts to build a better world.
