United Way's Equity Statement
United Way of Bartholomew County stands with everyone impacted by actions of discrimination.
As a community, we can and must guarantee that the basic human rights, freedoms, and opportunities of every person in our community are protected. We must come together to call out injustices and demand its removal from our community; otherwise, we are endorsing the status quo and are complicit in unfair practices.
Our work involves identifying the issues that pose the greatest challenges for our community. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are a continuing part of our conversations. We plan to use the voices of the community to play our role in affecting positive change for all.
After all, one thing is clear: we all have a role to play in creating a more equitable future.
We are asking you to Stand United to make our community the place it needs to be – equitable, respectful, and opportunity-filled for all individuals.
