United Way of Delaware hosting free 21 day “Racial Equity Challenge”

DELAWARE – The United Way of Delaware is hosting a free 21 day online challenge to raise awareness as well as educate people about racial equity.

People who register for the challenge will receive one email every weekday from August 17th to September 14th. The emails will involve activities like reading an article, listening to a podcast, writing a journal entry or watching a video and then reflecting on it in their own lives. Officials with the United Way of Delaware say the goal is to help people learn how racial inequity and social injustice impact our community.

“We, all because of our own life experiences, deal with some social bias. No matter what color you are or where you come from, you have some type of bias,” says Tierra Fair, the director of Community Engagement for the United Way of Delaware.

The YWCA is partnering with the United Way for this challenge and will facilitating conversation in a Facebook group. Officials say more than 12-hundred people have already signed up and they are aiming for five thousand people to sign up.
