Media Note: Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield to travel to Los Angeles, California July 19-20

Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield, U.S. Representative to the United Nations, will travel to Los Angeles, California, on July 19 and 20.

Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield will address the Diplomatic Corps at a reception hosted by Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass. Following on the Cities Summit of the Americas in April and in the lead up to September’s Sustainable Development Goals Summit, the Ambassador will highlight the subnational leadership of cities like Los Angeles in advancing the Sustainable Development Goals and fulfilling the 2030 Agenda’s promise to “leave no one behind.”

Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield will also deliver keynote remarks welcoming 30 new U.S. citizens at a naturalization ceremony hosted by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. She will meet with staff and beneficiaries of Miry’s List, a nonprofit organization that helps welcome and resettle refugees arriving in the United States from countries including Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Ukraine. And she will engage with high school and community college students on the importance of public service.
