The 2023 Advocacy Forum and Capitol Hill Day (June 20-22, 2023) is United Way Worldwide’s signature public policy and advocacy event. Leaders from across the Network gather for policy updates and advocacy training, engage with policymakers, and share best practices for state and local policy work.

NEW THIS YEAR: Attendees will participate in a Partnership Summit hosted in collaboration with the Department of Commerce at their office in Washington, DC. Watch this video from United Way Worldwide's Vice President of Public Policy, Josh Dickson, to learn why this is an important addition to the Advocacy Forum program.

At the event, local United Ways and State Associations will gain invaluable takeaways related to federal, state, and local advocacy strategies, strengthen their understanding of federal policy priorities, learn how to engage elected officials and policymakers, and network with public policy colleagues from around the country. 

Attendees will also have an opportunity to build and strengthen relationships with federal lawmakers and share the extensive impact United Way has on their constituencies and communities. This year’s event will include one day focused on Executive Branch policy, partnerships, and engagement. The next day, attendees will visit Capitol Hill for meetings with Congressional offices.  

**Attendees must arrange for their own legislative meetings, as a state group. Guidance will be provided.**

Goals of the event:

  1. Develop effective advocacy strategies that drive mission impact and resources and engage individuals and partners. 
  2. Facilitate networking, learning, and knowledge sharing between and among United Ways on public policy issues. 
  3.  Build relationships, advance local, state, and network-wide priorities, and explore the diversification of revenue opportunities through meetings with the Administration and Capitol Hill. 

Space is limited, register to attend today! Travelers should confirm their event registration before making nonrefundable travel plans.
