Advocacy

Each day, United Ways across Texas work to build stronger communities. United Ways believe that active participation in policy
advocacy is critical, not just to furthering the impact of our work, but to driving lasting systemic change. United Ways of Texas
(UWT) focuses on overall support for the Texas non-profit sector, as well as the areas of education, financial stability, and
health— three pillars of a quality life.
