IMPORTANT NOTE ON THE EQUITY CHALLENGE: The Equity Challenges that United Ways and many others around the country are promoting were created by a third party to help people better understand how racial inequity and social injustice impacts our community. The challenge contains hundreds of activities such as reading an article, watching a video, listening to a podcast, and reflecting on personal experiences. These activities are collected from a wide range of viewpoints and may contain language or ideas that may trigger a variety of feelings or emotions in the participant. The United Way is committed to just and fair inclusion into a society in which all can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential. However, the views and opinions expressed in the Equity Challenge activities are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of United Way. All content provided in the Equity Challenge is the contributor’s own opinion and are not intended to malign any religion, ethnic group, club, organization, company, individual or anyone or anything.
