EVERYONE IS A CHAMPION FOR CHANGE
Civic engagement is important, and we encourage you to get involved with the issues that matter to you. Below are just some of the many ways you can be a champion for United Way and families with young children.
PUBLIC POLICY AGENDA
A committee of United Way of Snohomish County volunteers and staff develop an annual public policy agenda to provide guidance on a variety of local, state, and federal policy issues. This year, United Way of Snohomish County is supporting the United Way of the Pacific Northwest’s public policy agenda.
As we embark on our new CORE work, United Way will provide information to legislators and to the public to increase understanding and awareness of the impact of policy and budget decisions on children birth to 8 and their families in our community.
Every year, United Ways across the country band together for Lobby Day, an organized gathering of staff and volunteers championing key issues relevant to our work.
This year, United Way of Snohomish County advocated for the state's continued support of two items on the United Ways of the Pacific Northwest's legislative agenda: funding for 2-1-1 and HB1508, which requires Breakfast After the Bell in high-needs schools.
