21 DAY CHALLENGE: UNTIL JUSTICE JUST IS
YWCA Utah is excited to announce the launch of our 21 Day Challenge: Until Justice Just Is, to begin on June 12, 2023. The 21 Day Challenge is the action component for the Until Justice Just Is campaign, which will run throughout the month of June to raise awareness of systemic racism and how each of us can take action to advance justice. YWCA Utah is excited to be a part of this challenge again with YWCAs across the country to offer this unique virtual learning community to participants across the state.
YWCA Utah has been serving women in Utah for 117 years, serving survivors, and communities experiencing marginalization, through our direct services and setting new standards for what race equity should look like. We will continue to build on our momentum for advancing justice, and the 21 Day Challenge is a critical component in realizing this vision.
The YWCA Utah 21 Day 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. The Challenge works to foster personal reflection, encourage social responsibility, and motivate participants to identify and act on ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.

For four weeks, daily challenge activities (reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experience, etc.) are posted in the Challenge app and website, allowing participants to connect with one another, discover how racial and social injustice impact our community, and identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination. Each week covers a different topic related to equity and social justice. Daily activities are not posted on the weekends. This year YWCA Utah has created additional content that shows the ways these topics have directly impacted communities in our state. Keep an eye out for the “keeping it local” sections each day.
