Following a year of great unrest and strife, it’s critical that people take the time to learn with and from each other. Join thousands of your neighbors across Illinois for the United Way of Illinois Equity Challenge. The group will learn about inequality and systemic racism in 21 weekly lessons.
The self-guided learning journey examines the history and impact of racism, and how it has shaped people’s lives. The experience will deepen understanding and help launch what we hope will be a lifelong commitment to improving equity and inclusion.
- 100% FREE to participate.
- Receive one email per week from Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 18, 2021, to Juneteenth on June 19, 2021.
