Background

UN-General-Assembly-President

In 2019, Salt Lake City hosted an annual conference for nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). During that conference, then General Assembly President María Fernanda Espinosa Garcés of Ecuador became the first sitting president to visit Utah. She took a tour of the Church’s Welfare Square.

In November 2019, Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles visited New York City where he met with the office of the president of the General Assembly. They discussed several shared priorities, including eradicating hunger and poverty and improving education.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints maintains government relations offices in New York City and Geneva, Switzerland. Church representatives serve on committees for nongovernmental organizations and maintain relationships with leaders of the United Nations.
