This week, Goodwill advocates from around the country will visit Capitol Hill and meet with hundreds of lawmakers to advocate for federal investments in programs that leverage Goodwill and benefit the people we serve and for the reauthorization of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). You can help bolster the success of their visits and help strengthen Goodwill’s public policy influence from the comfort of your home or office.
Take part in the Goodwill on the Hill Virtual Advocacy Day to make your voice heard! The Goodwill Legislative Action Center allows you to have a voice, and with one click of a button you can contact your member of Congress.
Dwayne Hodges from Goodwill of the Heartland (Davenport, IA) is one example of our great advocates. Dwayne notes, “Upon walking into the offices at Goodwill’s employment services, I did not feel like I was being judged because of where I had come from. The staff would even come and get me when I didn’t have a vehicle, which helped me tremendously.” Several years later Dwayne has earned his bachelor’s degree and has been gainfully employed. Now he’ll be telling his story on Capitol Hill. Please join Dwayne in supporting Goodwill’s public policy efforts.
