Monthly speaker series featuring breakfast, networking, and an enlightening presentation and discussion of timely topics that directly or indirectly affect everyone in our area.
United Way fights for the Health, Education, and Financial Stability of every person in our community. As the second largest funder of human services (next to government), we recognize that policies at the local, state, and federal level have direct implications for the services we support and the lives of each and every one of us, including our most vulnerable community members.
With 1 in 3 households in Monroe County defined as "ALICE" - Asset-Limited, Income-Constrained, but Employed - and struggling to make ends meet, while an additional 1 in 5 families lives in federally-defined poverty, collective advocacy at the state level is a critical piece of the puzzle when discussing lasting and meaningful change.
Interested in learning more about our statewide advocacy priorities for the year ahead and how you can join in making a difference?
We'll be joined by Kathryn Habecker, Impact & Advocacy Manager of Indiana United Ways, to learn about upcoming state and federal opportunities for engagement and collective impact. Kathryn engages and guides United Way agencies through community impact work, outcomes measurement, and public policy. Designing and leading engagement of local United Ways at the Statehouse, working year-round with legislators and key community stakeholders in home districts, and targeting activism on priority issues, Kathryn manages the public policy initiatives around the state and advocates for policies that provide stability, encourage upward economic mobility, and expand access to healthy, safe, and thriving communities for all Hoosiers. We're delighted to welcome her to Monroe County on October 10th!
Alongside friends, neighbors, nonprofits and community partners, learn more about issues that directly or indirectly affect everyone in our area. Attendees will have the opportunity to deepen their awareness about someone else’s reality while learning about the challenges, innovations, collaborations, resources available through area nonprofits, and how to get more involved in making a difference.
