27 April debate: Urge states to speak up for a fairer process

On 27 April, states have the opportunity to speak up at the UN General Assembly for improvements to the process for appointing the UN's next leader. 

We need as many states as possible to support a fairer UN Secretary-General selection process. To make this happen, we need public support.

With the help of its supporters, the 1 for 7 Billion campaign will create a social media storm on the morning of the debate to urge states to call for an end to the secretive, outdated appointment process that falls far short of basic recruitment standards and to increase media coverage of the issue.

Whether you have a Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr account, you will be able to join the storm.

Don't do social media?
