WHO WE ARE

United Way advances the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all. We fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community we serve.

PUBLIC POLICY AGENDA

United Way of Southeast Louisiana’s 2022 State Legislative Agenda, “United for a Safe & Prosperous Community,” advances our mission to eradicate poverty in Southeast Louisiana and stabilize ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) households by ensuring health, education, and financial stability for all.

ALICE is a term to describe individuals and families across Louisiana who work hard, yet cannot afford the basics. ALICE has low-paying jobs, little or no savings, and is one emergency from falling into poverty.

This legislative agenda is aligned with United Way SELA’s Blueprint for Prosperity and seeks to both remove barriers and create opportunities for vulnerable households to thrive. We are committed to creating more equitable communities for us all. Join us and become an advocate today.
