Working toward Equity for All

My dream is for an equitable, safe and healthy North Texas.

Ashley grew up in Southern Dallas. Her family still lives in the area, and she still has a lot of connections to the community there. Throughout her life, she’s seen first-hand how systemic inequities can hold back entire communities—including parts of Southern Dallas—and prevent people from thriving.

From a young age, Ashley knew she wanted to help tackle the challenges that affect North Texans, like lack of access and opportunity in the areas of education, income and health. Today, she supports United Way of Metropolitan Dallas because it enables her to help create a more equitable community for everyone.
