Advocacy & Public Policy

Your voice has the power to make a difference. Elected officials need and want to hear from you. Join us in advocating for public policy that leads to economic well-being for families across our community.


Just as donating to and volunteering for United Way are critical to build a stronger community, advocating for our organization and our work is important, too. Part of our work IS to advocate. And we need your voice! 

That is what makes United Way different.

We need each of you to lend your voice and take meaningful actions that make a difference. 

Policy change can be big or small. It can be asking your city council to invest in public Wi-Fi; urging policymakers to make education after high school more affordable; working with lawmakers to adopt policies that make housing universal, stable and affordable.  

Or it can be mobilizing your family, friends and neighbors to vote or to speak out on a critical cause, whether in person or online. 

Take the first step by joining the United Way of Greater Cincinnati advocate network. Become an advocate and break down barriers to prosperity in our community by filling out the form below.

Through advocacy, we can achieve more than any one of us can achieve alone. That's what it means to #LIVEUNITED
