There is No Change Without Action

You can help inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow by talking about important issues and laying the groundwork for positive change. There are many ways to reach out and improve the condition of our community. You can start small by wearing a Live United shirt to show your support and work up to writing letters to members of Congress.

If you want to break the cycle of domestic violence, ensure our youth are on track to be proficient in reading by the third grade, or help those suffering from food insecurities, you must speak up and be part of the solution.

For example, are you interested in advocating for public funding for high-quality early education?  If so, simply click the Pre-K for PA logo to sign up to be part of the this state wide effort!
