United Way of Greater Kingsport Anti-Racism Statement (adapted from United Way Worldwide):

United Way has always been involved in the fight for equity – we fight for greater opportunity for every person in every community. Our work is focused on impacting health, education, and financial stability in some of the most underserved communities across our region.

  • We unequivocally stand against racism and ethnic discrimination and encourage people of all backgrounds and identities to speak out against racism, bigotry, and violence.
  • We acknowledge that racism and ethnic discrimination have contributed to inequities in opportunities and access to employment, education, healthcare, and housing, which has disproportionately and negatively impacted African Americans and other people of color.
  • We must all do our part, working United, to make our communities the places that we need them to be – equitable, respectful and opportunity-filled.
  • We, as a society, can and must do better to guarantee that the basic human rights and freedoms of every person in every community are protected.
