Meet Alice

“Although I am older than most of the population [at UWGB] and poor, no one sees that (thankfully). My eliminating my face by using my hair is me expressing the fact that you can’t see my individualness. You can’t see my poverty. You can’t see my age. I’m just a girl.”

A United Way Forward

The events involving the recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery have once again made us painfully aware of the divisions and inequities which undermine the well-being of our community and communities across our nation. These deaths, combined with the COVID-19 pandemic, highlight the continued health, education and economic disparities that exist within our communities of color. Data demonstrates that Wisconsin has the dubious distinction of being the worst place for an African American person or family to live. This should and must be of concern to us all.

Brown County United Way’s mission is to unite people, resources and ideas to create community solutions that strengthen every person and every community in Brown County. As an example, BCUW is focused on learning from and advocating for those in our community who are living in poverty as defined by the Federal Poverty Level and those who are ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed). We envision an inclusive community where all individuals are able to meet their basic needs and have equal opportunity for stability in their health, education, financial well-being and community connection. Current events clearly demonstrate that physical and emotional safety, as well as the recognition of the need for healing from recent and historic traumas, is essential for us to achieve this vision.

As we look to the immediate future and beyond, BCUW will continue to engage in the necessary systemic advocacy work that will bring about lasting change both within our organization and throughout our community. Our history of collaboration with diverse stakeholders will and must continue so that multiple perspectives are represented, respected and engaged as we forge the path forward. Now more than ever, we need to Live United. Silence is not an option. The Brown County United Way Board of Directors and staff will do our part to show up, listen, share our voices in ongoing community conversations and be part of the solutions.
