United Way of Racine County fights for the health, education and financial stability of every person in our community. That work calls us to confront the challenges and disparities in our community and state. In each pillar of our work – Health, Education and Financial Stability, which we recognize as the building blocks for a good quality of life and strong community – Wisconsinites face disparities along racial and ethnic lines.
The stark reality of racial disparities, racism and inequity throughout Wisconsin calls us to recognize, understand and act against racism and racial inequity. Over the next 21 weeks, we will explore difficult topics, such as privilege, internalized racism and structural racism, to open dialogue on how we can be champions of equity in our personal and professional lives and work toward anti-racism.
We know that when we Live United, we must Live United for everyone. Thank you for joining us in this work by taking the 21-Week Equity Challenge!
