The Power of Public Policy & Advocacy

Public policies can either block – or unlock – the conditions that invite children and adults in our communities to fully realize their potential, talents and skills. Since Georgia’s greatest resource is its people, public policy is a very powerful lever to capitalize on our most important asset.

Communities thrive when every child and adult has the chance to achieve well-being. Making Georgians’ well-being our top priority requires commitment and teamwork. Cooperation among diverse policymakers working across disciplines along with community leaders and families, is needed to build – and maintain – the conditions that allow everyone to achieve their full potential.

United Way of Greater Atlanta is the first in the nation to align its work around Child Well-Being and data-driven outcomes to improve the lives of nearly 500,000 children and families in Greater Atlanta.
