Advocacy comes in many shapes and sizes. You advocate when you wear a ribbon to support a local cause or initiative, when you speak on behalf of a policy which can enhance your community’s wellness in front of your City Council, when you participate ‘on the hill’ in Des Moines to educate legislators on a need or issue, or even when you wear your Live United T-Shirt!
United Way's advocacy's work is focused on:
- Developing relationships with elected officials from both parties at all levels of government.
- Sharing what we have learned from our initiatives and heard within the community.
- Focusing on where we align with others and working with allies to collectively drive change.
