Advocate

To raise awareness and support, United Way and our partners share issues and solutions related to our community with our friends, family and local leaders. Without advocacy and community input, our priorities will lose critical government policy and funding support.

See below for ways you can speak out in support of your community:

  • Speak Out - Contact your representative in Congress about an Education, Financial Stability, Health or nonprofit strengthening issue.
  • Be Informed - Learn how our community ranks in academic attainment, income stability and health. Use the United Way Common Good Forecaster, a powerful online tool that lets people see for themselves how improving the education level has a positive impact on several key economic and social measures.
  • Engage With Your Community - Host a community conversation with your friends, coworkers or neighbors. Learn about what people say are their aspirations for your community and talk about how you can work together to address challenges.
  • Get Social - Use social media tools to educate your friends and networks about an issue you care about. Connect with United Way on Facebook.

You can sign up for our emails so you never miss advocacy updates.
