United Way’s Healing Illinois 21 Week Equity Challenge : Take the pledge to heal our community

Recorded: Friday January 8th, 2021

There is significant need for us as individuals and organizations to gain a better understanding of how inequity and racism impact so many of our neighbors. We have partnered with local United Ways across Illinois and the Illinois Department of Human Services with their Healing Illinois initiative. This 21-week program is a self-guided learning journey that examines the history and impact of racism, and how it has shaped people’s lives.  It’s not enough to be kind, and our journey is still only beginning.
