Unite to Learn and Grow

United Way’s Racial Equity Work

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.
