Systemic racism creates obstacles for Black and Indigenous People and People of Color, upholds all other forms of oppression, and is an injustice to us all.
United Way of Champaign County is committed to educating our community and changing systems to eliminate these obstacles, and expects stakeholders to honor and share our commitment.
The future of Champaign County depends on honoring and including varied perspectives and finding solutions to the root causes of complex problems.
United, we will create space to share successes and failures so that we can continue to grow and effectively serve our dynamic and diverse community.
