Justice Series: United For An Anti-Racist Future

0 Comment
Community members are key to dismantling the racist structures that keep people in poverty. Meet two leaders who have seen this firsthand.

We have a saying at United Way: “you can’t be anti-poverty without being anti-racist.” And that’s because the systems that decide who holds power in our communities are traditionally built on racist ideologies that prevent people of color from having a seat at the table. In order to have a chance at eradicating poverty and increasing social mobility for everyone in the Triangle, we must look at how these historical structures keep our neighbors in poverty and how we can utilize the time and expertise of the community to dismantle them.

On Oct. 1, we’re kicking off the new season of Justice Series with an intimate conversation between two community leaders that know these systems intimately. With nearly 20 years of combined professional experience in the nonprofit space, Nick Allen (United Way’s Chief Program Officer) and Dr. Ronda Taylor Bullock (we are’s Lead Curator), have seen our communities struggle, influenced its many triumphs, and they’re ready to talk about what they’ve learned. Will you join us?
