WHAT IS THE STAND AGAINST RACISM CHALLENGE?

The Stand Against Racism Challenge is a free virtual learning tool designed to create dedicated time and space to build more effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of race, equity, and leadership. Participants will be presented with 21 days of impactful challenges such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, watching a video, completing weekly action steps, competing for prizes, and more in the YWCA Stand Against Racism Challenge app or web platform.

Participation in an activity like this helps us to discover how racial and social injustice impact our community, connect with one another, and identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.
