The Western New York 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge Day 20

day 20: final reflections

Today’s challenge is to take time to reflect on your experience. Research shows that a critical component to learning is taking time to reflect or being intentional about processing the lessons being taught by your experiences.


1. What are my identities and in what ways have my identities impacted my life? Are there identities of mine that have provided me higher social capital or privilege in certain environments, or vice versa?
2. What were some of my assumptions about race and racial inequity before I started this 21-day challenge? In what ways have these assumptions been challenged? In what ways have they been reinforced?
3. Where have I seen evidence of inequities and systemic and structural racism in my community?
4. What two to three shifts, changes or actions, can I take to create a more inclusive and equitable environment in my home, workplace, and community?
5. What do I want to learn more about? What topics related to racism, oppression and/or discrimination do I need more research on?


  1. Write down a goal you have moving forward to help in dismantling racism and inequity. Research shows that when you write down your goals, you are more likely to commit to them and achieve them.
