News / Statements

In 2020, the United Way of Pictou County is celebrating our 60th Anniversary. That's 60 years of supporting marginalized and vulnerable persons in our community! Together with our funded agencies, volunteers and partners, we work collaboratively to bring people together to make positive and sustainable impacts on our community. We envision a community where Pictou County neighborhoods are healthy, thriving, support and safe. We will continue to work hard so that everyone has access to resources that support them in reaching their full potential.

 

Our statement on anti-black racism

Systemic racism exists across the world and in our local communities. For generations, African Nova Scotians have experienced inequities due to systemic racism, and still do today. As an organization that is guided by values of compassion and respect, we can and must do better.

Our organization must listen to and learn from the first-voice perspectives of African Nova Scotians, amplify their voices, invest in their communities, and address inequities and injustices.

The United Way of Pictou County will continue to be a leader in our community with not only our voice but our actions.  We will be paying attention and we will continue to monitor ourselves to ensure we live up to our commitments of listening, investing, amplifying, and addressing inequities.

Black lives matter.
