Racial Justice Challenge

YWCA Spokane wants to thank and acknowledge Dr. Eddie Moore Jr., Debby Irving, and Dr. Marguerite Penick for their leadership in the field 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.

Each year, YWCAs across the country come together to engage in a nationwide challenge. As we moving in a new direction, the name of our challenge has changed to the Racial Justice Challenge from the 21-Day Stand Against Racism (SAR) Challenge.

The Racial Justice Challenge is accessible to anyone interested in learning more about racial equity and social justice and examining these issues in our own communities. Consider inviting your friends, family, and co-workers to join you in powerful and courageous dialog and action by moving through the challenge topics together as a learning community. Thank you for accepting this challenge!

What To Expect

This Racial Justice Challenge was designed to help community members create dedicated time and space within their schedule to build more effective social justice habits, particularly around issues dealing with race, power, privilege, and leadership. Each challenge includes daily prompts suggesting you take a few moments to build more effective social justice habits by reading an article, listening to a podcast, or reflecting on a personal experience.

This is an opportunity to dive deeper into racial equity and social justice. The Racial Justice Challenge provides not only critical information and historical context to better understand systemic racism; we hope it proves to be a catalyst for ongoing participation in racial and social justice efforts that help to create a fair, just, and equitable community.

The 2022 21-Day Equity Challenge

각 도전 과제에는 기사를 읽거나 팟캐스트를 듣거나 개인적인 경험을 반성하여 보다 효과적인 사회 정의 습관을 구축하기 위해 매일 시간을 할애하라는 메시지가 포함되어 있습니다.

이 도전은 조직적인 인종차별을 더 잘 이해하기 위한 중요한 정보와 역사적 맥락을 제공할 뿐만 아니라; 공정하고 공정하며 평등한 커뮤니티를 만드는 데 도움이 되는 인종 및 사회 정의 노력에 지속적으로 참여하는 촉매제가 되기를 바랍니다.

Thank you to the 120+ people who signed up for our 21-Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge in 2022!
