The United Way of Sumner County believes equity is the intentional inclusion of everyone in society. Equity is achieved when systematic, institutional, and historical barriers based on race, gender, and other identities are dismantled. Our mission is centered around equity in education, income, and health. We fight for greater opportunity for all.
United, we have the collective capacity and courage to identify and address the different ways that bias, prejudice, privilege, and oppression show up in our community. We will continue to look to our network of volunteers, donors, partners, and advocates to identify solutions and be part of the ongoing conversation to end inequality. We are committed to working alongside those who are most affected by disparities. Together, we can create a thriving community where everyone has the opportunity to succeed.
