United Way of the Tanana Valley
Racial Equity Impact
United Way of the Tanana Valley envisions a just, equitable and inclusive community for
residents of all racial and ethnic backgrounds. Today, however, we are falling devastatingly short
in providing equitable opportunities for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) in Tanana
Valley. BIPOC Alaska residents face racist disparities in health, education, income, housing, and
These disparities are a result of systemic racism that is perpetuated intentionally and
unintentionally through institutions, culture, and individuals. UWTV acknowledges that the fight
against poverty must be inclusive and anti-racist. Because racism is ingrained in the fabric of
American institutions, it is easily self-perpetuating. All that is required to maintain it is
business as usual. In our fight to end poverty, UWTV has taken a stand to not do “business as
usual” if it perpetuates racial or other forms of inequities.
