Living United

LIVING UNITED of Capital Area United Way aims to honor individuals in our community who have – throughout their lives – worked toward the elimination of bias, bigotry and racism across ethnic, gender and religious lines.

Capital Area United Way is committed to identify, develop and implement impact strategies, practices, processes and messaging to drive equitable community change. To achieve our vision, we must understand and address the underlying factors that impede progress. By challenging practices based on racism, and other historical and current forms of discrimination, we can create more inclusive communities and equitable outcomes.

Dialogue on Race Louisiana

Capital Area United Way, along with corporate sponsors, will host Dialogue on Race sessions to further engage the community. Each session will last six weeks and 10-15 individuals will be selected to participate. Participants will represent a diverse mix of race, gender, age and socioeconomic statuses.

If you would like to participate in a series, please contact Amey Shortess Crousillac at
