Accept the Challenge!
Our 21-Day challenge is over for 2021, but the resources and materials will be available until next year’s challenge so you can dive into the content at your own pace. Register below to get your access.
The 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice 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.
Each day of the challenge you will be presented with activities such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experience and more. Participation in an activity like this helps us to discover 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.
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.
To engage with other people doing the challenge, use the hashtag #YWCAEquityChallenge to share your reflections on social media. You can also join our Facebook group where participants can continue the conversation in a safe space.
This is an exciting opportunity to dive deep into racial equity and social justice. Select your local YWCA affiliate to join us on this journey.
