United Way of Washtenaw County (UWWC) invites the community to participate in a 21 Day Equity Challenge to build our community’s awareness of the ways that bias, prejudice, privilege, and oppression show up in our work and lives. UWWC has a vision that by 2030, your zip code will no longer predict your opportunity in life. At present, in Washtenaw County, it does. The Challenge will launch on Juneteenth (June 19, 2021).
Our Equity Challenges have brought more than 8,000 people together to uncover biases, learn about structural racism, and how to take action to build an equitable community, and launched a movement across the country. To date, 17 United Ways in Michigan and 12 United Ways in other states have led their own equity challenge inspired by our work.
This self-guided learning journey will take place from June 19 - July 9. The Challenge examines the history and impacts of racism and how it shapes people’s lived experience in Washtenaw County.
