Advocacy Center


Fighting poverty depends on engaging the entire community. United Way of New York City needs your help supporting critical legislation and public policies that have the potential to improve educational outcomes, economic stability, and health in our city.  We offer year-round opportunities to lend your voice.  Whether you write a letter to Congress, spread the word via social media, or network with likeminded people in one of our groups, we need you as an advocate.
