Join the cause. Make your voice heard. Create real change.
When we talk about advocating, we’re not being political. We’re asking you to speak out: for UWMM, our initiatives, and the people (including children) in our community who are affected by the issues we RISE to overcome. Our goal is to inform ourselves; help our community understand the complex issues that face our families and neighbors, our state, and our nation; and coming together to solve them.
Whether you’re speaking out to improve Education, Financial Stability, or Health; telling your representative what you think; or using social media to spread the word about an issue you care about, you can help inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow.
When you advocate, you take action to improve your life and the lives of those around you. Advocacy comes in all sizes: It can be petitioning your school board to require healthier cafeteria meals. It can be urging your government to invest more in schools, or make child tax credits permanent, or make more children eligible for health insurance. Or it can be mobilizing your contacts to speak out on a critical cause, in person or online.
