Dedicated to the idea that we can get more done together

We use data-driven insights to identify our community’s greatest needs and address systemic challenges with a focus on advancing equity and sharing opportunities for all. Together, we fight to improve the disparities that persist in education, economic mobility, and basic needs in Jefferson, Bullitt, Oldham and Shelby counties in Kentucky and Clark, Floyd and Harrison counties in Indiana. We invite you to join us and be a part of transforming Greater Louisville. To live better, we must LIVE UNITED.
