As our communities continue to be outraged by the senseless violence and deaths of people of color in America, YWCA New Britain is launching a 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge.
We know that to do better, people must first know better. The 21-Day Challenge is an exciting opportunity to dive deep into racial equity and social justice. The challenge provides not only the critical information and historical context to understand systemic racism; it asks participants to create a daily habit of carving out time and space to get up and advocate for peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
Participants who register will be provided with curated articles, podcasts, activities, and more delivered straight to their inbox. Emails will begin going out Monday, July 6, and continue (Monday –Friday) through August 3. Registration for the challenge is open now on YWCA New Britain’s website and you do not need to be a member to sign-up.
YWCA will also be facilitating conversation in the 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge Facebook group, where participants can discuss the content and engage with others taking the challenge.
We want to thank YWCA Greater Cleveland for inspiring this challenge. They, in turn, were inspired by Food Solutions New England — they were the first to adapt an exercise from Dr. Moore and Irving’s book into the interactive 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge, which they launched in 2014.
We hope you will join us on this journey and we can’t wait to get started! If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Bernier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
