Racial Equity and Inclusion
It has been the long-standing commitment of United Way Worldwide to oppose racism and racial and ethnic injustice and discrimination in any form. Consistent with this position, United Way of the Lowcountry expressly opposes and condemns any type of racism or racial or ethnic injustice, particularly among our African American and other communities of color. We believe that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect, which includes equal and equitable access to justice, education, employment, and services. As we work to meet the needs of our neighbors and build a stronger community, we are committed to continuing to promote social and racial justice and to break down any inequities that exist in the provision of our services, including access to nutritious food, healthcare and education.
Moreover, we are committed to partnering with leaders in our community and other community-based organizations to address these pressing issues. Working together, we seek to find solutions to improve the basic needs, education, economic mobility and health disparities in our community.
We must all do our part to stand up against racism and injustice to make our community a better place for all people.
