Advocacy

Social Justice Advocacy

We work toward systemic policy change that will have a positive impact on the people we serve. We champion thoughtful legislation while building relationships and influencing peer organizations, policymakers, and funders. We educate the public about the critical work we are doing in our communities and the important problems we are working to solve collectively.

Our dedication to the most vulnerable among us propels us to advocate for and seek innovative, evidence-based solutions to our community’s most pressing challenges – homelessness, aging in isolation, generational poverty, the achievement gap, HIV/AIDS, inequality, and immigration. Tough issues we face with determination, tenacity, and collaborative problem solving with those we serve. It’s why so many industry experts join us in our drive toward social justice and community resilience.


Census 2020

Every 10 years, the federal government is required to count every person residing in the U.S. through a national census. There is a lot at stake with Census 2020. Standing up for the count is one of the most powerful things you can do to support yourself, your family, and your community. Learn more about the 2020 Census.
