For seven years, Infrastructure Week has been held to recognize the importance of investing in America’s infrastructure. The initiative is now known as United for Infrastructure, and this year, its signature annual event, A Week to Champion America’s Infrastructure, will be held on May 11–18.
United for Infrastructure is a 501c4 nonprofit that works to educate the American public and policymakers about the importance of infrastructure to the nation’s economy, workers, and communities. In partnership with the business community, labor unions, associations, think tanks, elected officials, and others, the organization has led the charge to improve America’s infrastructure. United for Infrastructure is non-partisan, is not affiliated with any political candidate, and does not take a position on any legislation or elections. It works with any group interested in talking about the importance of America’s roads, bridges, rail, ports, airports, water and sewer systems, the energy grid, and more.
Throughout the year, United for Infrastructure works to highlight the critical role infrastructure plays in all sectors of the economy and show policymakers at all levels of government the breadth and diversity of support for long-term, sustainable infrastructure investment. Its signature annual event is United for Infrastructure: A Week to Champion America’s Infrastructure (formerly Infrastructure Week). This week of advocacy brings together organizations and individuals from across America—from local businesses, trade associations, and chambers of commerce to mayors and individual citizens—to host events, tour new and innovative projects, and talk about infrastructure with the press and on social media. United for Infrastructure also hosts a Presidential Candidate Infrastructure Forum, a podcast, webinars, and workshops.
