Together, We Can
Building a strong community that takes care of everyone who lives here depends on your generous support.
United Way of Greater New Haven has been holding robust internal dialogues among staff to deepen our understanding and knowledge of issues of diversity, equity and inclusion. We recently made our commitment public in a Letter to Our Neighbors that we shared with the community following the death of George Floyd.
In the spirit of shared learning, we offer a collection of resources on a range of topics that may prove useful in your own exploration. The resources that you see collected below have been offered up by staff members, shared by peer organizations, or featured by our United Way partners and will evolve over time. We welcome suggestions for additional resources through the submission portal at the bottom of the page and hope that you find something here that will inform your own journey.
