I MISSED THE CHALLENGE, WHAT’S NEXT?
The 21-Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge ran from July 6th through July 27th, though you can view all of the 2020 Challenge content in our 2020 Archive! All emails, including the shared resources, are available there, so if you missed a day, want to revisit any content, or conduct your own challenge, you’ll be able to. While we’d love to have this as an ongoing opportunity, we’re just a small team and working on new projects all the time, including “Learn More. Do More.” a monthly newsletter dedicated to furthering education and engagement around racial equity and social justice.
WHAT IS THE 21-DAY RACIAL EQUITY AND SOCIAL JUSTICE CHALLENGE?
We have chosen to further our education and encourage community conversations by embarking on the Challenge, which designed to create dedicated time and space to learn about racial equity and build more effective social justice habits.
You will receive an email with challenges such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experience, and more. Participation in an activity like this helps us to discover how racial injustice 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!

WHAT INSPIRED YWCA’S 21-DAY CHALLENGE
This challenge was originally developed by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. and Debby Irving and has been adapted by many organizations across the country. The challenge is designed to create dedicated time and space to build more effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership.
A special thank you to YWCA Greater Cleveland for providing the blueprint for the Challenge, and to the other YWCA’s who have participated in this Challenge and offered their inspiration. The 21-Day Challenge which was originally adapted by Food Solutions New England.
