United Way believes that advocacy is a critical component to making positive, long lasting changes, in education, income, health, and strengthening nonprofits.

Advocating is More Than Politics

In addition to contacting legislators, every time you speak to a friend, post a note on Facebook or hang a flyer in your local neighborhood, you are advocating.

Advocate in Your Community

We need your help promoting these causes:

  • Promote the Need for mental health

  • Tell someone about 2-1-1: This helpline can only work if everyone knows they can use it.

  • Help people save on Prescription Drugs: FamilyWize discount card saves people an average of 30% on their medications. Read more or download flyer.

  • Raise funds for Education, Income and Health Initiatives: Raise awareness about these issues by reposting our Facebook or e-newsletter updates.
