21-Day Equity Challenge
United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region is challenging you to a 21-Day Equity Challenge that will provide audio, visual and print resources about specific topics in our community each day of the challenge. You can choose to read an article, watch a video or listen to a podcast - or delve more deeply into the topic by engaging with all three. Depending on your choice, each challenge will take from few minutes up to an hour daily. (Click on days below to see challenges.)
Please note that we do not endorse the stories above, we are simply providing a list of resources pertinent to DEI topics.
The 21-Day Equity Challenge, presented by United Way’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Committee, begins on Monday, January 18, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service, and continues to Sunday, February 7. This is a powerful opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of how inequality affects our lives and our community.
Please feel free to share this information with your family, friends, students, colleagues and employees. There is no charge to participate and we encourage everyone to join in. (Download Flyer to share PDF JPG).
In addition to the Challenge, you can participate in several virtual and socially distanced volunteer opportunities. To find out more, go to www.uwdor.org/mlkday21.
