WHAT IS THE 21-DAY RACIAL EQUITY AND SOCIAL JUSTICE CHALLENGE?
This virtual challenge will take 5-15 minutes of your day for 21 days and is designed to create dedicated time and space for education and to build more effective social justice habits concerning issues of race, racism, power, privilege, and leadership.
You can take the Challenge on your own or with a team! Each day you will be presented with challenges to read an article, listen to a podcast, or watch a video. Your participation can help to discover how racial and social injustice impact our community, to connect with one another, and to identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination. This is an exciting opportunity to dive deep into racial equity and social justice. We hope you will join us on this journey and we can’t wait to get started!
