Advocacy means shining a light on issues that affect our community and lending your voice to ensure children succeed in school, individuals live healthy lives, and everyone has the opportunity to achieve financial well-being. At United Way, we provide a nonpartisan platform for people to create meaningful change in our community. By becoming an advocate for United Way, you help inspire hope and create opportunities for children and families in northern Nevada to thrive.
For many, advocating will be word of mouth. For others, it’s simply wearing the LIVE UNITED shirt. For some, it will be sharing their story on social media, writing a letter to the editor, or speaking up in a community forum about how to better northern Nevada.
