Take The Challenge

Racial equity is central to United Way of the Greater Triangle's mission to eradicate poverty and increase social mobility through the power of partnerships. That's because the data shows that race, gender, or both are always the determining factors in whether someone will suffer more than others. In order to change, we must alter behaviors and demolish structures that have been ingrained through centuries of systemic oppression.

United Way's 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge can be your first step. This email series will take you on a journey of learning and self-discovery to help you develop more effective social justice habits around issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership. Community members can participate as individuals or as a part of a workplace, place of worship, professional association, or more. Participation is free.
