Today, First Lady Dr. Jill Biden participated in the raising of the U.S. flag at UNESCO, further realizing the President’s vision of a United States that is engaged globally wherever and whenever our national interests can be advanced.

The United States is committed to UNESCO, where important conversations happen every day to promote scientific cooperation, safeguard freedom of expression, preserve irreplaceable cultural heritage, advance media independence and pluralism, and strengthen education everywhere.  By rejoining UNESCO, the United States recommits to that premise and the proposition that great things can be accomplished by nations working in partnership.
