The United Way of the National Capital Area (United Way of NCA) would appreciate your support in airing their radio public service announcements (PSAs). The PSAs were produced to raise awareness about inequalities in the Washington, D.C. Metro area.
Each American deserves the same opportunities for success — that’s what equity is all about. And yet that isn’t the reality for so many of our brothers and sisters in the D.C. Metro area. According to United Way of NCA, 87% of the homeless population is African American… while only making up 44% of the total population. And only 50% of adults with mental illness in Virginia receive any form of treatment.
The three PSAs in this Campaign, titled “Practice Equity”, address the blatant disparities that exist in our nation’s capital. United Way of NCA brings attention to this problem and encourages listeners to practice acting equitably as they might develop any skill; championing the sentiment that When None Are Ignored, All Will Thrive.
