Getting Soup

You can join the fight for the basic needs, education and financial security of every person in Central Kentucky.

In order to break the cycles of poverty, dropout rates and lack of basic needs in Central Kentucky, we need to engage the entire community. That means we need you to join the fight. You can help by telling your friends and colleagues about the importance of getting involved.

Here are some ways you can ADVOCATE...

  • Speak Out: Contact your representative in Congress about education, income, basic needs or other issues to help strengthen nonprofit organizations. 

  • Be Informed: Learn how your community ranks in access to basic needs, academic attainment and financial stability by remaining engaged in current community events. 

  • Raise Awareness: Use your voice on social media to share the issues you care about with your friends and networks. Join us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Like and leave comments on our posts to help spread our message.

 

Still have questions about being an advocate for your community? Contact us using 2-1-1!

Thank you to these men and women who serve on the United Way of the Bluegrass Policy & Advocacy Committee!
