There’s a lot going on in the world today, from racial injustice to rising unemployment due to the pandemic. As a result, many people are looking for safe and meaningful ways to fight for systemic change in our community. Civic engagement is at the heart of what United Way of Central Ohio does. For nearly 100 years, we have brought together leaders, volunteers, donors and residents in our community to solve problems in a nonpartisan manner.
To meet the challenges of this moment, United Way is participating in the United We Count, United We Vote campaign to mobilize our local partners and caring residents in encouraging and helping others be civically engaged and make their voices heard on the issues they care about.
We know that solving our community’s challenges and ending racial injustice starts with ensuring our communities are counted in the census and can exercise their right to vote. Voter and civic engagement build stronger communities. Participating in civic engagement activities contributes to the quality of life of our communities.
We invite you to join us. Be counted and vote for justice, equity, education, jobs, health.
