Write a letter to your elected officials
Advocating has always been a critical part of United Way of Central Iowa's work. Share your thoughts, opinions, motivations - your voice - with the people who represent you when making important decisions.
Letters, typed or handwritten, and sent through the mail, are more important than ever. To encourage advocacy at a local level, United Way held a virtual event on writing letters to your elected officials.
Advocacy Letter Writing Event
During the March 23, 2021 one-hour session, attendees learned about the issues currently in play in the legislature and what United Way is advocating for. Attendees also learned how to engage with legislators and received guidance for writing their own letter.
