Thank you for your interest in the 5-Day Racial Equity Challenge.
Over five days, participants in the Challenge will explore difficult topics like structural racism, segregation, and privilege to open up dialogue on how we can be champions of racial equity in our personal and professional lives.
The self-guided learning journey, adapted from a similar challenge created by our sister United Way in Washtenaw County, examines the history and impacts of racism and how it shapes people's lived experience in Denton County.
Our goal? You will reflect and learn how racial inequities permeate our community on individual, institutional, and systemic levels. We are all impacted by the system of racism in our country. Thus, we are all responsible to dismantle the structures that allow it to persist.
We need you. We believe united action is powerful. We all benefit from a collective courage to identify and address the different ways bias, prejudice, privilege, and oppression show up in our work and lives.
