We spread awareness of community issues and advocate for evidence-based public policies. By building relationships with public officials, we want them to understand the needs of our community and enact public policies that help us all do great.

Why Advocate?

Advocacy goes beyond volunteering and giving in order to drive long-term policy changes. More than 700 local United Way Advocates communicate our priorities to policymakers and advocate for improvements to current policies.


Receive regular email updates about current issues and pending legislation. At critical times, communicate with elected officials in-person, by email or by phone.


Participate in advocacy and policy-related events. Attend the Eggs & Issues breakfast with North Texas legislators. Meet with lawmakers in Washington, D.C. and Austin.
