United Way believes that every person is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect – this includes equal treatment and access to justice. Recent events involving violence and threats against the Black community expose our society’s underlying racism and prejudice that prevent too many people from being treated with the humanity and respect they deserve. We are UNITED in our support for racial justice, and we stand with the Black community.
