As the region rebuilds from the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Wake Up! with United Way season focused on Building a Better Normal. This monthly speaker series explored the underlying issues contributing to poverty and economic insecurity while also bringing to light innovative solutions and how to support rebuilding a better normal.
Each month’s discussion focused on how we can all create a brighter future that works for everyone in our community, including topics like homelessness, food security, and workers’ rights.
The Wake Up! with United Way 2021 season was a collaborative project of United Way of Monroe County and IU’s Political and Civic Engagement Program. Thanks to the 2021 sponsors for making Wake Up! with United Way possible: Premier Series Sponsor Bloomington Township; Presenting Sponsors IU Credit Union and Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County; and Program Sponsors Duke Energy and Old National Bank.
