What can I do?

Anyone can champion a cause.  Advocacy may sound imitidating, but it can really be quite simple.


  • Start conversations with friends and neighbors about important community issues.  Don't wait for someone else to get the ball rolling; it may never happen.
  • Reach out to members of your local government about issues you'd like to see changed.  Write letters, send e-mails, schedule a meeting; anything to make them aware of what is important to YOU.
  • Wear your LIVE UNITED short.  This nearly always provides an opening to start a conversation.
  • Register to vote.  Voting is one of the simplest ways to make your voice heard.
