SAVE THE DATE
Save the date for the return of Young Leaders Society’s (YLS) trivia night: Brews & Brains. This annual trivia night & fundraiser brings together all the good things in life: good beer, great company, and fun trivia.
United Way California Capital Region established Women United in early 2002. This small group of committed women developed the mission statement and held the first luncheon benefiting local foster community in the Arden Mall Nordstroms’ parking lot. Over the years, Women United members have continued their commitment to ignite positive change and impact the community particularly in the areas of foster youth, education, financial stability and health.

Standing United for Inclusion and Equity
United Way California Capital Region Statement on Racism and Injustice
People across the country are expressing their outrage for the killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, and too many more.
Our United Way shares these feelings of sadness and outrage toward racial violence and injustice in our country. We are also asking ourselves how we can make a difference during this difficult time. If we are committed to building stronger, healthier, and more compassionate communities, then we must channel our justifiable outrage to collaborative action.
We must stand united for justice.
