WHEN DOES THE CHALLENGE START?
The 21-Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge runs from July 6th through July 27th, though you can join any time! All resources will be available the following day on our site, so if you miss a day or want to revisit any content, you’ll be able to.
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!
WANT TO TAKE THE CHALLENGE AS A GROUP?
Companies, organizations, and groups are welcome to participate as a team! Just let us know who is on your team at the link below. Only one representative from the group needs to complete this process. Companies who submit their information by July 5th will have their logo featured on our site as a participating organization. Sign up as a group and receive our Stand Against Racism decal! Be sure to invite your team members (including you!) to sign up individually at ywcautah.org/challenge, and include your team/company name in the “Company” field.
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.
