Loretto at the UN
Loretto Community is an NGO (non-governmental organization) accredited with consultative status at the United Nations. The Loretto at the UN office works to disseminate information to the Loretto Community about issues being addressed at the United Nations and around the world. The NGO office also leverages the knowledge base of the Loretto Community for effective advocacy work with U.N. Member States and U.N. agencies. Having an office at the United Nations allows Loretto to advocate for human rights, Earth rights and a social-justice-oriented framework for creating international policy.
