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.

The Cleveland Metropolitan School District is engaging the community to gather feedback on “The Cleveland Plan: Four-Year Implementation Strategy.” Eric Gordon, school district CEO, stated, “The document will drive our transformation work going forward and when it’s complete, will be a tool for holding us accountable for results.” The document has been distributed throughout Greater Cleveland, and community members are urged to attend and offer input during community meetings to be held throughout January. “I cannot stress enough how important community feedback and input will be as we refine the document that will guide this important work,” said Gordon.
