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

Many people are becoming newly aware of how systemic racism and violence are impacting people of color. Even if you are new to the conversation, that is OK. Our 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. Participants who sign up for the Challenge will receive daily tasks via email to help foster their understanding and awareness, with activities such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, or reflecting on personal experience. If you’ve already completed this challenge with us in the past please know that our challenge is designed to be taken multiple times by selecting different daily challenges in order to expand what you have previously learned.

Our challenge began on March 1.

Racial equity work is consistently underfunded. In order for organizations like ours to continue to provide high-quality programming like our 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge, please consider contributing $21 to sustain this work. Your help towards the cost of creating and hosting the challenge assures that resources like this are widely accessible to all, and helps advance our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women.

WEEK 1 - VOTING
