United Nations New Stamp Issue

2019-03-02 Sat

Coming soon from United Nations is a set of three brand new stamps being released in the middle of the month of March. The stamps are based on the subjects of “Stop Sexual Exploitation and Abuse,” “Gender Equality” and “Migration.”

The new 85¢ Stop Sexual Exploitation and Abuse stamp is for use from the U.N. post office in New York City. The objective of this stamp is to raise awareness worldwide regarding the problem of sexual exploitation and abuse, from which no institution is immune and to address the stigma and discrimination that victims face.

The 1.50-franc Gender Equality stamp is for use from the U.N. post office at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world.

The €1.80 Migration stamp is for use at the post office at the Vienna International Center in Vienna, Austria. The UNPA states, Migration provides immense opportunity and benefits — for the migrants, host communities and communities of origin. However, when poorly regulated, it can create significant challenges.

The illustrations for the three stamps were created by artist Chris Gash. The UNPA is classifying all three of these stamps as definitives. A noon ceremony will take place at the March Party stamp show in Strongsville, Ohio.
