At United Way of the Columbia Willamette we focus our work on serving the most marginalized and underserved groups and we know that centering race and ethnicity is critical to ending the historical and social inequities that continue to exist in our region. To learn more about our commitment to racial equity visit our Leading with Equity page.
As part of our continuing work on advancing racial equity, we’ve put together a compilation of local and national resources created by multiple organizations. The content in this section includes resources for educators to better understand racial inequity and to assist their students to develop racial consciousness and awareness.
