21-Day Equity Challenge


Join us in the 21-Day Disability Equity Challenge!

United Ways across the state of Michigan are partnering with local Centers for Independent Living to present this 21-Day Disability Equity Challenge. This statewide effort will explore disability from a position of equity and pride to raise awareness, increase understanding, and shift perspectives about disability in our culture.

Stay tuned for important updates regarding the 21 Equity Challenge. We look forward to launching in January 2023!
