United Way plays a key role in advocating for good public policy. We also help to educate both policy makers and community members on important issues to promote informed decisions. United Way seeks long-term solutions that improve education, income and health, as well as those that strengthen the nonprofit sector and ensure that basic human needs are met.
United Way is one of the few places that people can come to the table to tackle community issues regardless of their political views. Our goal is to help bridge the gap between those driving policy decisions and the agencies and individuals impacted by those decisions.
You can raise your voice with us by writing to your local elected officials, keeping up-to-date on policy changes, engaging in social media discussions, or attending a budget forum.
Join us and advocate for the issues that are important to you. Join our Policy & Legislation committee to become part of advocating for change in SW Missouri & SE Kansas. Contact us today by calling 417.624.0153!
