Advocate in Your Community


Advocacy is about more than signing petitions or writing letters to elected officials. It’s about understanding the issues, speaking up and promoting your beliefs to your family, friends and neighbors.

Wear the Shirt.

You can start a conversation about what you believe in simply by what you wear. The Live United t-shirt has become an icon that speaks to what United Way is all about… working together to create opportunities for a better life for everyone in Greater Kansas City. So, get the shirt and give, advocate and volunteer!
