United Way Worldwide will be partnering with Attend Safe for the upcoming Advocacy Forum & Capitol Hill Day event, to provide secure and HIPAA compliant COVID-19 vaccine verifications. 

All Advocacy Forum attendees are required to submit their proof of vaccination by June 13, or you will not be able to gain entrance to the event. To proceed with providing your proof of Covid-19 vaccination, follow the instructions below. Once submitted, your documents will be reviewed and verified for authenticity and confirmation of event attendance. A separate submission must be done for each individual/attendee.

If you have circumstances which prevent you from submitting your proof of vaccination, please contact by June 13.

During the event, we encourage following recommended health and safety protocols, including regular handwashing, maintaining social distance, avoiding poorly ventilated spaces, and self-isolating if you feel ill or test positive for COVID.  Masks are not required but are encouraged.  Should you become ill or test positive for COVID-19, we request that attendees remove themselves from participation and notify United Way reserves the right to deny entry to or remove anyone at the event presenting with flu-like or COVID-19-related symptoms. Refusal to abide by United Way Worldwide’s health safety related procedures may result in removal from the program and cancellation of registration without refund.    

United Way Worldwide has put in place various preventative measures to address concerns about the spread of COVID-19. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee that attendees will not be exposed to COVID-19 while attending the conference. Each attendee assumes the risks associated with attendance at an in-person event.
