A month after the murder of George Floyd, the movement to end police brutality and stand in solidarity with Black lives continues to grow. Here at United Way of Forsyth County, we are committed to doing our part to build political power in our communities and ensure our elected officials are prioritizing policies to end racial injustice and inequality.

That’s why UWFC is participating in a digital day of action on July 9 to call on people to fight for racial justice by using their voting power.

Elections have a huge impact on police reform policies, including police officer training, use of force policies, police accountability and oversight measures, funding for community services and criminal justice issues. Voting is essential to turn demands into action.

On July 9, here are three important ways you can take action:

Join us for a Twitter Storm on Thursday, July 9 at 2pm ET encouraging people to exercise their power and register to vote. Use hashtags #VoteforJustice and #VoteUnited.

Take action and register to vote. Already registered? Remember that YOU are the best person to influence the people closest to you. Send a text to your friends and family to remind them to vote.

Pledge to vote. Join us by pledging to do your part and participate in our democracy. It takes 2 minutes to take the United We Count, United We Vote pledge!

Help us build a healthier, more equitable democracy and fight for system level change in Forsyth County. #unitedway #community #givingback #give

Now more than ever, people across the world must come together to create positive, lasting change. We must unite to reimagine our communities and our world, because we know that change doesn’t happen alone.

For the past several months, our country has been wracked with the effects of COVID-19. Today’s challenges go deeper than COVID-19. Recent events involving violence and threats against African Americans expose our society’s underlying racism, prejudice and privilege that prevent too many people from being treated with the humanity and respect they deserve.

We must all do our part, working United, to make our communities the places that we need them to be – equitable, respectful and opportunity-filled. We, as a society, can and must do better to guarantee that the basic human rights and freedoms of every person in every community are protected.

United Way’s vision for a better America is one in which every person is respected, every voice is heard, and every community thrives. We can’t reimagine and rebuild without a commitment to opportunity -- health, education and financial stability -- for all.

This ad gives voice to America’s first National Youth Poet Laureate, 22-year-old Amanda Gorman, and features her original poem, called Live United. It was inspired by United Way, and all that we can achieve together when we unite for our communities.


In these difficult times, her clarion call to “. . .dare to care, to be hope-sided” sends a powerful and hopeful message about our collective opportunity to reimagine and rebuild a better world. And it reminds us what we can achieve when we Live United.
