*State Legislative Update*
This year, United Way Bay Area is continuing to track state legislation that would increase the overall well-being of our neighbors by increasing the efficiency of our poverty-fighting programs in the Bay Area and paving the way toward a more equitable region. At this point in the legislative session, some bills are still making their way through committee hearings and various votes, while others have been unsuccessful for the time being.
Here’s the breakdown of the bills we have been working on this year:
As you can see, we have prioritized bills that will directly serve our communities, improve our functions as an organization, and lay the groundwork for the future we know is possible for the Bay Area. If you have any questions about our policy priorities, please contact Monica Strauch, and to remain up to date on our ongoing policy initiatives, sign up for our UWBA Policy Newsletter.
Read about each bill in detail at California Legislative Information website.
* Our policy initiatives are part of our comprehensive effort to end the cycle of poverty across our region and represent our commitment to improving opportunities for all community members. When you support UWBA, you’re helping to maintain an equitable Bay Area where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
