Take the Equity Challenge

Following a year of great unrest and strife, it’s critical that we 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. We’ll 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.
