Racial Justice Challenge

A- A A+



The Racial Justice 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, and completing weekly action steps. We also offer weekly virtual discussions to unpack what we’ve learned each week.

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





Since we launched in 2019, YWCA has had over 50,000 participants across the country take the challenge and reached 2,600 unique ZIP codes.



YWCA wants to thank and acknowledge Dr. Eddie Moore Jr., Debby Irving, and Dr. Marguerite Penick for their leadership in the interest of racial equity as exhibited in their 21-Day Racial Equity and Habit Building Challenge and the movement they helped to initiate. YWCA’s content is independently designed, written, and curated by YWCA staff as part of racial equity and social justice programs offered to the community.

The YWCA Racial Justice Challenge is trademarked, and while we encourage outside organizations to collaborate with or sponsor local challenges, all content must be hosted on YWCA association channels and published under the YWCA brand.
