Advocate

People often hear the word “advocacy” and think of professional lobbyists. Advocacy is much more than lobbying – and anyone can be an advocate!

It can be as simple as posting a tweet in support of a policy or emailing your legislator about an issue that matters to you.

United Way’s advocacy work is focused on creating positive change in education, income, and health public policies by:

  • Developing relationships with elected officials from both parties at all levels of government.
  • Sharing what we have learned from our initiatives and heard from the community.
  • Focusing on where we align with others and working with allies to collectively drive change.

Find out who represents you and tell them what is important to our community.
