United Way of Broward County


Our 2016 Legislative Agenda


Advancing the Common Good

When we advance the common good for our community, we create opportunities for a better life for all.  Access to quality healthcare, a good education and pathways to prosperity are the building blocks for a strong community.  A key strategy to achieving systemic, long term solutions to community problems is targeted involvement in advocacy for public policy issues at the local, state and national level. 


United Way of Broward County believes government can play an important role in creating change improving people’s lives, but they cannot do it alone.  United Way of Broward County must actively engage in public policy advocacy to build coalitions and develop partnerships, in order to achieve our mission and goals in advancing the common good for all Broward residents.
