What is the 21 Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge?

The 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.  Our 21 Day Challenge begins on July 6.

You will be presented 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 learn 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 beginning July 6. You will receive a daily email and can view the challenges on our website and social media. We can’t wait to get started!

The 21 Day Challenge was originally developed by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. and Debby Irving. The project 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. We want to thank Food Solutions New England for inspiring this initiative and adapting an exercise from Dr. Moore and Irving’s book into the interactive 21 Day Racial Equity Challenge, which they launched in 2014. We also want to thank YWCA Greater Cleveland for generously allowing us to adapt their project for our local association.
