Advocate

Your voice is powerful. Use it. Raise awareness about a cause you care about.

United Way advocates for public policies that help to improve people’s lives so that everyone living in our communities has the chance to thrive. We advocate at the state and local level to ensure government continues to invest in critical human services because philanthropy, faith-based communities and the private sector can’t do it alone.

While influencing legislation, programs, and funding decisions is the heart of what we do, we also facilitate conversations on how to meet community needs, create innovative public-private partnerships that deliver effective services, and educate the community about the impact of human services funding reductions.
