Do I have to be a CGS member to participate in events?
Does CGS offer discounted memberships?
Yes! While our standard Annual Memberships are $25, we do offer youth and sliding scale memberships as low as $5 per year and free memberships for young people participating in our programs up until the age of 30.
Does CGS work with the United Nations?
Yes! Citizens for Global Solutions has special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) status.
Consultative status provides NGOs with access to not only ECOSOC, but also to its many subsidiary bodies, to the various human rights mechanisms of the United Nations, ad-hoc processes on small arms, as well as special events organized by the President of the General Assembly. This gives CGS a seat at the table to participate in the UN process where we can contribute to policy discussions, share expertise, and advocate for a more democratic UN.
How does CGS engage in advocacy?
Citizens for Global Solutions is a non-profit, non-partisan organization.
CGS Advocacy entails building political will in the United States for global cooperation and democratic international institutions that respect the rights of people and nations. We support global institutions and coalitions such as the International Criminal Court, the World Court of Human Rights Coalition, and more!
CGS does not financially support political campaigns, or endorse political parties, or individual political candidates.
