Our country is navigating the most challenging economic times in a generation. The current shutdown is harmful and potentially catastrophic for our fragile economy.
Programs like Head Start and WIC help struggling families put food on the table and care for their children. The government shutdown is harming our children and limiting their future opportunities by reducing investments in their health and education. The longer the shutdown continues, the more people and communities’ economic security will be damaged.
It is in the interest of our Nation that Congress and the Adminstration find a way to fund the government immediately. While we are not taking a position on how the government shutdown gets resolved, we are calling on leaders in Washington to turn to the normal processes our government has for resolving these issues.
We need your voice to urge the President, Congressional Leadership, and each and every Member of Congress to reach across the aisle and work to find common ground on funding the federal government.
United Way envisions a world where all individuals and families achieve their human potential through education, income stability and healthy lives.
