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.

United Way is doing amazing advocacy work with their recent ALICE report. Read more about what ALICE is, and who this report primarily affects.
