Confronting Racism

Our parish has registered as a partner with United Way of Washtenaw County (UWWC) in a challenge designed to help each of us to confront racism in our lives and communities. All are invited to join in the 21-Day Equity Challenge: 2021 Edition to help build our community’s awareness of the ways that bias, prejudice, privilege, and oppression show up in our work and lives.

UWWC has a vision that by 2030, your zip code will no longer predict your opportunity in life. At present, in Washtenaw County, it does. The challenge runs from Juneteenth (June 19) to July 9. Sign up for free and commit to deepening your understanding of and willingness to confront racism for 21 consecutive days. Participants will receive an email prompt each day with readings, videos and other info. You will be encouraged to take about 15 minutes each day with the material.
