The 21 Step Equity Challenge is an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of how inequity and racism affect our lives and communities.
The 21 Step #EquityChallenge is an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of how inequity and racism affect our lives and communities. Topics take you through a journey that starts with understanding internalized racism and explores how racism permeates person-to-person interactions, institutions and social structures.
THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS:
Open to anyone looking to understanding internalized racism and explores how racism permeates person -to person interactions, institutions and social structures
To help deepen understanding, suggest ways to take action, and help launch what we hope will be a lifelong commitment to improving equity and inclusion in our community.
How it Works
- Each step will have information, links to articles, videos, and more about a specific topic. The challenge is to spend time on each level(approximately 15 minutes) learning and getting a better understanding of the equity issues we face.
- You can participate solo or form a small group to discuss topics.
- We will present you with ideas on actions you can take to help improve equity issues in your community.

WHAT WE FIGHT FOR!
United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community. That work calls us to confront the challenges and disparities in our communities 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 – residents face disparities along racial and ethnic lines.
