LEARNING AND GROWING TOGETHER

The 21-Day Equity Challenge is a powerful opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of how inequity and racism affect our lives and our community. It is completely free to participate. Each day offers information and resources focusing on a specific equity-related topic. 

The experience deepens understanding, suggests ways to take action, and helps launch what we hope will be a lifelong commitment to improving equity and inclusion in our community. Deepening understanding of race and equity doesn’t happen over night. And yet- learning how to develop or strengthen a race equity lens is a key part of bringing equitable change to communities. 

That’s why, across our global network, United Way is engaging in 21-Day Race Equity Challenges. Developed by diversity experts Dr. Eddie Moore Jr., Debby Irving, and Dr. Marguerite Penick, the 21-Day Race Equity Challenge has been modified by United Way to help individuals learn more about the history and impacts of racism; and learn how bias, privilege, and oppression show up in our work and our lives
