Advocate

Anyone can champion the cause.

Breaking the cycles of dropouts, poverty and lack of basic needs in Central Kentucky depends on engaging the entire community. Join tens of thousands of United Way advocates by telling your friends and colleagues about the importance of getting involved.

Whether you’re speaking out to improve access to basic needs, education and income, reaching out to members of Congress, or wearing the LIVE UNITED shirt to show your support, you can help inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow.

Here are some ways you can ADVOCATE...
