Pride Month 2024

United Way of Pierce County fights for every person in every community every day. We believe that every person is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect – equal treatment and access to justice, not just, because it is the right thing to do, but because it makes United Way a stronger organization.

Because of these values, we strive to be an anti-racist organization that puts equity, diversity and inclusion at the center of our daily work and performance and we choose to support and Celebrate Tacoma Pride month!
