Registration Open for 21-Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge

We are excited to announce the FREE 2021 21-Day Challenge for Racial Equity & Social Justice will launch Monday, March 1st, and run Monday through Friday, ending on March 29th.

Join us in 21 days of activities such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experience, and more, to build more effective social justice habits. Daily challenges help us discover how racial and social injustices impact our community, and target specific, actionable ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.

We hope that you will go into this challenge with an open heart and an open mind, ready to be pushed out of your comfort zone. We know these discussions can be difficult and can bring up powerful emotions, but your commitment to increasing your awareness is what will help move our community forward.

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 had huge success when we originally ran this challenge in the summer of 2020. We hope you will join us on again this journey and we can’t wait to get started! If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Bernier at sbernier@ywcanewbritain.org.
