Honored and humbled to serve as @USAmbUN. To everyone who has reached out to offer kind words, including my second family in the Foreign Service and around the world: I'm sorry I'm unable to reply to all of you! Your support means everything to me.
I am honored, and beyond humbled, to have been sworn in today by @VP Kamala Harris as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations. Diplomacy is back. Multilateralism is back. America is back.

Today’s virtual visit from @SecBlinken to @USUN reinforced what both of us, through our many years at the @StateDept, have long known to be true: our most pressing global challenges can’t be solved alone. We need our partners, we need our allies, and we need our friends.

Racism is the problem of the racist, and it is the problem of the society that produces the racist. In today's world, that is every society.

Today’s UN General Assembly meeting on the elimination of racial discrimination was personal for me, because I know the ugly face of racism. I lived racism, I experienced racism, and I survived racism. I hope you’ll read my full statement: usun.usmission.gov/remarks-b…

For a truly equitable future, more women must take their rightful places in leadership at all levels. The #COVID19 pandemic has proven further that women are effective leaders—let us continue to rise. #IWD2021 #InternationalWomensDay vanguardngr.com/2021/03/to-g…

It's been a week since I was sworn in as @USUN Ambassador, and we haven't slowed down since. Sitting behind the United States placard is an enormous honor, and I aim to do it justice every day.

We are at our strongest when we find opportunities to come together. That doesn’t mean we stop standing up for our values, our allies, or our interests—in fact, it means the opposite. By coming together, I firmly believe we will create more shared security, prosperity, and peace.

The United States is gravely concerned by reports of atrocities in Ethiopia's Tigray region. We strongly condemn the killings, forced removals, sexual violence, and other violations of human rights. The international community must work together to prevent further atrocities.
