United Way of Central Carolinas fights for the education, health and financial stability of every person in our community. With more than 90 years of experience, we are a strategic community leader, convener and advocate with in-depth knowledge of the communities we serve across five counties in the Charlotte region.
By applying a racial equity lens to our work, we are paying disciplined attention to race and ethnicity, while analyzing problems, seeking solutions and defining successes. We are excited to listen, learn and do the hard work that is required to address the power imbalances that exist as part of systemic racism.
We must raise our voices, educate ourselves and do what is necessary to dismantle systemic racism. Take part in one of our many ways to learn and grow.
The Racial Equity 21-Day Challenge is a powerful opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of how inequity and racism affect our lives and our community.
United Way of Central Carolinas hosted five unique virtual panels about racial equity and the role that inequity plays in various aspects of society—including the workplace, education, health, housing and financial stability.
This multi-day workshop provides the information and tools necessary to move the conversation beyond the who and why to become an ally in helping advance racial equity inside organizations.
A week-long virtual service event, honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Lurther King Jr. around the holiday that bears his name.
