Equity Work

The United Way of the Crossroads fights for the education, health, and financial stability of every person in our area.  Violence, fear, and racism are in direct conflict with that purpose. If we are to truly LIVE UNITED, we must align our energies as a Crossroads community to break the cycles of hate, racism, inequality, and injustice.  We must use our voices, platforms, relationships, and passion to advocate for the reforms and community support necessary to bring justice and equity to our society. To that end, the United Way of the Crossroads has partnered with Be Well Victoria, Billy T. Cattan, and Gulf Bend Center to create ongoing opportunities that foster learning, discussion, and action to foster equality in the Crossroads. These activities are free and open to all community members. It takes us all to LIVE UNITED.
