From political representation to billions in federal fund allocations, the 2020 Census will shape our region for the next ten years. Yet many individuals have been consistently underrepresented, an omission whose ripple effects make child well-being an impossibility for many hard to count populations. Join us for a conversation with leaders who are working diligently to increase representation from underrepresented neighborhoods, and learn how your organization can contribute to making the 2020 Census count for everyone.

United Way of Greater Atlanta’s Child Well-Being Agenda is focused on addressing the systemic issues that put Greater Atlanta at the bottom of the list of U.S. cities in terms of opportunity and mobility for low-income children and make a child’s zip code of birth into their destiny. Child Well-being is the presence of the opportunity, resources and social supports for children to meet their full human potential, regardless of zip code.
Our work and our investments are fully focused on the 500,000 children living in communities with low or very low Child Well-Being. Our goal is to move 250,000 of those children into improved states of well-being by 2027.
About the United Way of Greater Atlanta InForum Partnership Engagement Series
The InForum Partnership Engagement Series is convening nonprofit, philanthropic and public partners to learn together as we seek to improve Child Well-Being in our 13-county region.
Partners gather at each InForum with some important facts top of mind: of the nearly 1.3 million children living in the Atlanta 13-county region, close to half a million live in communities with low or very low child well-being. United Way is looking to change that by improving the lives of more than 250,000 children across Greater Atlanta by 2027. This isn’t just United Way. This is all of us, non-profit leaders and community champions alike, coming together to change our community.
Each event pairs a national expert with a local influencer, creating a dialogue that blends best practices from across the country with local insight and experience. Collectively, attendees leave better equipped to keep fighting the good fight, having forged new connections to leverage experience, learnings and insights.
