Advocacy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Texas United Ways advocate for issues of critical importance to the communities they serve. With the advent of COVID-19,
United Ways across the state quickly mobilized to provide supports to all Texans, especially ALICE and groups hit hardest by this
pandemic. To ensure an inclusive recovery and the future success of our state, Texas United Ways are championing data-driven
policies that address disparities in the areas of education, health, financial stability, and the nonprofit sector.
