We’re Better Together

While most people agree that racism is wrong, and causes harm to others, often discussions about race are difficult, and lead to misunderstandings and conflict. The Richland County Community Equity Challenge is an opportunity for people to individually explore a different topic each day, with suggested reflection and action items. Some people may choose to use the challenge as a jumping off point to have deeper conversations with others as well.

What your friends and neighbors are saying:

Racism is a national epidemic. It’s important to participate in the Equity Challenge to bring awareness to individuals who may not know of the day-to-day issues and concerns that ethnic groups face.

Anna Durtschi

Whenever I see marginalized groups in distress, I find it difficult to walk away without trying to support them. After I read the NECIC Richland County State of the African American Report in 2020, I knew our community had to become educated on the disparities that exist and come up with solutions for better outcomes.
