EQUITY STATEMENTS PER UNITED WAY WORLDWIDE CONTENT REQUIREMENTS
UNITED WAY OF CENTRAL AND NORTHEASTERN CONNECTICUT (APPROVED JUNE 25, 2021)
United Way’s mission is to bring together people and resources for the well-being of children and families, by meeting immediate needs and finding long-term solutions to challenges facing our community.
Structural racism has contributed to persistent disparities in our region. We recognize that centering race and ethnicity in United Way is critical to ending the historical and social inequities that continue to exist in central and northeastern Connecticut.
Current and future community leaders live in every town in our service area. We are committed to authentically engaging with them as partners, donors and volunteers. We can only eliminate disparities when everyone has the opportunity to create new solutions to challenges facing our region.
