IT’S TIME TO ACT… BUT WHERE DO YOU BEGIN?

Will you accept the challenge?

From June 29 – July 27, YWCA South Florida is hosting the 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge as a way to begin the journey with education, and encourage discussion, action and change in our community.

The Challenge is based on the notion that it takes 21 days to change a habit. It is designed to create dedicated time and space to learn in order to build more effective social justice habits, particularly with issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership.

You are invited to accept the challenge!

How it works

You will be presented with daily challenges via email (weekends excluded) in four topic areas: Voting, Criminal Justice Reform, Education and Public Health. The challenges invite you to choose one of three options such as:

  • Reading an article
  • Listening to a podcast
  • Reflecting on personal experience

Challenge emails will include ideas to move forward and take action. Our private Facebook group offers a space to reflect, share and interact with others.

Background

The video of the murder of George Floyd at the hands of police officers has opened the collective consciousness of the United States. The world is watching how individuals and organizations respond and act to help heal the wound of systemic racism in our nation.

The 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge is an opportunity to dive deep into racial equity and social justice issues. YWCA South Florida is honored to host the Challenge as way to inspire actionable change that supports our mission to eliminate racism and empower women. Thank you to our partner, Kaufman Rossin, who made helped us make it FREE of cost to anyone who accepts.
