The Ginsberg Center invites University of Michigan students, faculty, staff and community members to join the United Way of Washtenaw County’s 21-day Equity Challenge, which runs Jan. 6-26.

The challenge is an opportunity to learn about the different ways that bias, prejudice, privilege and oppression show up in our everyday lives. It encourages participants to take a united approach to examining the history and impacts of racism in Washtenaw County.

With a commitment of 10-15 minutes per day, the 21-day virtual, self-guided challenge provides participants with tools and examples to broaden understanding and work towards building racial equity and justice.

“No matter your background or identity, the Equity Challenge is both an important and easily accessible way for all our campus members to work together to advance equity at the local level,” said Ginsberg Center director Mary Jo Callan. “It’s a very small time commitment to be a part of such essential work in our community.”    

Participants can sign up at or by texting “UWWCEQUITY” to 22828 to join. Participation is private, free, and anonymous.
