United Way believes that advocacy is a critical component to making positive, long lasting changes in our community. Whether you’re speaking out to improve education, income and health, reaching out to members of Congress, or wearing the LIVE UNITED shirt to show your support, you can help inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow.

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. So speak up and stand strong as someone who knows what it means to LIVE UNITED. Place a link on your website back to ours. Like us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter. Pin us on Pinterest and Link to us on LinkedIn. Let your voice be heard and show the world what it means to LIVE UNITED!

One of the easiest ways to affect change in your community is by voting. Whether the issue is local, regional, or national, your vote is one way to let your voice be heard in support of your community. Are you registered? If not, stand up and be counted. Register to vote today!
