Use Your Voice to Create Change

There’s never been a moment like now. Now is our opportunity to band together and fight for a MORE EQUITABLE FUTURE. To kick down old barriers and champion new ways of thinking. We need to STAND UP for people and communities that have been overlooked for too long.   By becoming an advocate with United Way of Washtenaw County you’re saying, “not on my watch.” Because we know quietly doing good is no longer good enough.

Advocating is crucial to a community's success. And guess what? It's easy. By calling, emailing, or even tweeting your representative, you can help us spread the word about the change that needs to happen in our neighborhoods. When you advocate with United Way, lawmakers take notice.
