21 Week Equity Challenge

We accept the challenge, will you?

We have partnered with United Way’s across Illinois to join the United Way of Illinois 21 Week Equity Challenge. The United Way of Illinois Equity Challenge is a 21-week program that encourages Illinois residents to engage in racial equity conversations to gain a deeper understanding about the impact systemic racism and inequity have on our state and in our local communities.

United, we can help create a stronger, more equitable Illinois economy and stronger, more inclusive Illinois communities.
