|2020 is an important year for America’s democracy, with critical resources and political representation at stake. And United Way is deeply involved. From building awareness of the U.S. Census to activating voter registration, more than 200 state and local United Ways are leading voter and census engagement initiatives across the country. |
Civic engagement is at the heart of what United Way does. For over 130 years, United Way has brought together leaders in communities to solve problems in a non-partisan manner. Today, our role is even more important than ever. We know that solving the health and economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic means that people need to be civically engaged, policymakers must take action that will help workers, children and families, and we need an accurate census count to determine where resources are needed the most.
To meet the challenges of this moment, United Way has launched the United We Count, United We Vote campaign to mobilize local United Ways, partners and caring citizens in helping people be civically engaged and make their voices heard during this time of uncertainty. We invite every person in every community to join us by pledging to complete the census and pledging to vote in 2020. Join the fight. Link to the website is here.
