About the 21 Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge

Thank you for stopping by to learn more about the challenge. The YWCA Cleveland was instrumental in helping us to execute this challenge. Our challenge will be starting one month behind the YWCA Cleveland.

This challenge was originally developed by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. and Debby Irving and has been adapted by many organizations across the country. The 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.

We want to thank Food Solutions New England for inspiring this challenge. They were the first to adapt an exercise from Dr. Eddie Moore and Debby Irving’s book into the interactive 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge, which they launched in 2014. They are entering their fifth year of coordinating the Challenge with more than 3,000 participants

Participants will be prompted daily with challenges 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, to identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.

This is an exciting opportunity to dive deep into racial equity and social justice. We hope you’ll join us and accept this challenge.

Our challenge starts on Monday, June 22 and continues (Monday –Friday) through Monday, July 20.

Before Day 1, you will receive an introductory email explaining the purpose of the challenge. Starting on June 22, expect to receive daily emails containing your challenge options.
