Our Commitment to Racial Equity

At United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, we believe in the power of unity and equity to create lasting change. We acknowledge that systems of structural racism in North Texas have created barriers to equitable access to education, income, and health — the building blocks of opportunity. That’s why we have designed an eight-year strategic plan to ensure United Way of Metropolitan Dallas is a fully inclusive, multicultural, antiracist organization. We know that to drive transformative change in North Texas and advance racial equity in the areas of education, income, and health, we must also drive transformative change and advance racial equity internally. To achieve this transformation, we are infusing racial equity into every aspect of our work.
