In light of recent events, United Way of Western Connecticut asserts its rejection of anti-Semitism, racism and violence in all forms and expression. United Way exists to advance the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community. To accomplish our vision, honoring inclusivity in our words and actions will leverage the greatest strengths and possibilities for households across Western Connecticut. We value and respect a diversity of perspectives, and believe violence has no place in keeping our communities strong and to realize our greatest potential. Thank you for joining us in standing up and advancing the common good.
