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.
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.
