A message from UW President, Patrick Moran:

On behalf of the Board and staff at Greater Ottawa County United Way, we want to say THANK YOU! Our community’s response to the 21 Day Equity Challenge was remarkable. We believe united action is powerful and it benefits us all to have greater collective capacity and courage to identify and address inequity of all kinds in our community.    Almost 1,000 people in Ottawa County have already joined us through the Equity Challenge, and we want to keep it going. 

For us, this isn’t a moment—it’s a movement.

We invite you to continue growing, learning and moving the conversation forward. The entire Challenge is catalogued with all the content for your continued use. Schools, businesses, non-profits agencies, PTOs, book clubs, study groups, churches and more participated – we hope you will too!


If you’d like United Way to tailor a specific equity opportunity for your organization, including guided group work and an ‘equity challenge’ contact Liz DeLaLuz: ldelaluz@ottawaunitedway.org.
