The 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge is a powerful opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of how inequity and racism affect our lives and our community.
This email series takes participants on a 21-day journey of learning and self-discovery that aims to develop more effective social justice habits around issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership. Community members can participate as individuals or as a part of a workplace, place of worship, professional association, or more. Participation is free.
Sign up to receive a daily email with a brief explanation of the day’s racial equity-related topic, and links to educational content like videos, articles, podcasts, and more. Each activity only takes 10-15 minutes.
Over 60 local community partners proposed, vetted, and selected the content that will be used in this regional Challenge.
