United Way’s Public Advocacy Goals
We don’t just ask people to give, but work for the common good by creating positive change that brings health, education and financial stability to all members of our communities.
Advocate for Healthy Children
Ensure all children in California have the health insurance they need to access a regular doctor and preventive care, so they can grow up healthy and ready to succeed in life – which benefits all of society, our economy and our communities. At a minimum, we must ensure that this year’s policy and budget decisions do not result in more children losing health coverage. Learn more at United Ways of California’s website.
