Post-election Message from Our Leadership

By United Way of King County Posted on November 10, 2020 In Statements from Our Leadership

As we move toward greater clarity on the results of the presidential election, it is important to remember that the work of United Way of King County will continue, building a community where people have homes, students graduate and families are financially stable.  

The economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic will continue to have a disproportionate effect on Black, Indigenous and communities of color, so our work at United Way will go on to support these communities.

We will continue to raise funds and work with our partners, who provide rental assistance and deliver healthy food to our neighbors affected by the health and economic impacts of the pandemic.

As an anti-poverty organization, we will take care of each other and help our neighbors.

United Way will continue to fight for social justice and against the root causes of poverty and homelessness: systemic and structural racism.

Stay safe, stay well and stay connected with your neighbors.

Gordon McHenry, Jr.
President & CEO, United Way of King County

Carol K. Nelson
Board Chair, United Way of King County
