Throughout our history, United Way has had immense impact on people’s lives and communities. With our focus on community impact, United Way has a key role to play in advocating for good public policy. There are many ways that you can advocate:
Speak up and speak out about issues affecting your local community. Be the voice of your community to inspire people to take action and solve a challenge in education, health and financial stability.
Host a community conversation with your friends, coworkers, neighbours and local leaders. Learn about what people say are their aspirations for your community and talk about how you can work together to address challenges.
Raise Awareness about a Cause
Use social media tools to educate your friends and networks about an issue you care about. Share our messages and content on social media to get the word out.
Anyone can be an advocate to advance the common good!
