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.
Participants are presented 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, and 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.
Together with our sister YWCA’s we expect to grow the already 3,500 participants and 700 unique ZIP codes that have joined the 21 Day Challenge across the country.
A special thank you to YWCA Greater Cleveland for inspiring the 21-day challenge along with YWCA Dayton, YWCA Central Alabama, YWCA Hamilton, YWCA Mahoning Valley, and YWCA Northwest Ohio for participating in the 2020 challenge!
