United Way of the National Capital Area Equity Statement

Social justice serves as a core principle for United Way of the National Capital Area (United Way NCA).

We infuse diversity, equity and inclusion in all our business operations and community impact initiatives. Our leadership, board, staff, partners and volunteers support anti-racist work that exposes and dismantles institutional and systemic racism and all forms of injustice.

Our commitment to racial equity is the core of who we are, who we serve and who we support. United Way NCA represents a collective community that cares. Our team continues to serve and intentionally lift up those who are marginalized because of their intersectional identities, which includes race, age, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, education, ability, culture and language. United Way NCA champions collaboration, community connections and critical conversations that advance our journey toward equity for all people across the greater Washington, DC metro area.

Achieving equity is not a sprint, but rather a lifelong marathon. At United Way NCA, we make room for all who are ready to join us on this journey. We will continue to take bold strides and commit resources to attain equity for everyone.
When none are ignored, all will thrive.
