YWCA 21 Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge 2020

The 21 Day Challenge is an exciting opportunity to dive deep into racial equity and social justice. Participants will receive curated articles, podcasts, activities and more right in their inbox. Emails will begin going out Monday, Aug. 3, and continue (Monday –Friday) through Aug. 31.

Taking part in an activity like this helps participants discover how racial inequity and social injustice affect our community and identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.

“YWCA Walla Walla is proud to partner with our sister associations to help our valley engage in issues related to racial equity and social justice. We have seen a shift in our nation where more and more of us are wanting to learn, grow, and take action to make a difference in the lives of our family, friends, and neighbors,” said Anne-Marie Zell Schwerin, Executive Director.

Sign up to receive daily emails during the 21 Day Challenge, each with content relating to racial equity and social justice. As you encounter this material, you may feel challenged, empowered, or intrigued. You might even feel uncomfortable, and that’s OK.  These issues are not easy. Most of all, we hope you’ll feel better prepared to talk about race and racial justice in your daily life and in your community..  

Thanks for signing up!

Watch for a confirmation email (check junk or promotions folders if you don’t see it) and let your email program know the message is from an approved sender so your emails will get through.

My interest:

YWCA’s challenge was inspired by Food Solutions New England. They were the first to adapt an exercise from Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. and Debby Irving’s book into the interactive 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge. The challenge is designed to create dedicated time and space to build more effective social justice habits and bring awareness to issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership. This program was first adapted by YWCA Cleveland and is now being widely adapted and shared by YWCAs across the United States. We are particularly grateful to YWCA of Central Virginia for their help with acquiring resources.
