Equity in Michigan
21 Day Equity Challenge: Michigan Edition
United Way of Washtenaw County (UWWC), has a vision that by 2030 your zip code will no longer determine your opportunity in life. At present-- in Washtenaw County and our State-- it does.
In response to newly available data on the wellbeing of households in our State who are Asset-Limited, Income-Constrained, and Employed (ALICE), United Ways across Michigan are launching a special State Edition of the 21 Day Equity Challenge.
This version of the Equity Challenge is designed to take participants through a state-level exploration of the history and impacts of racism and how it has shaped the lives of people in Michigan. Along the way, participants will be equipped with resources and tools to take action for racial equity in their work and lives. Join us!

We will read and discuss the title book by Jon Meacham. He describes how our country overcame partisan fury and fear in the past, and he provides perspective on how the current critical moment in politics and life may be overcome by leadership and the will of the people.
The book details the actions taken by notable presidents to fight danger and dissension. We will also read how citizen-led movements such the suffragettes, civil rights and others initiated progress towards greater democracy, even when those in power could not or would not.
