Who This is For

This series helps community members, organizations, and businesses dedicate time and space to build more effective social justice habits, particularly around issues dealing with race, power, privilege, and leadership.

Our Previous Challenges

Embark on a transformative journey where the powerful intersection of disability, housing, mental health, and music takes center stage. As we delve into racial equity and justice, we illuminate the interconnected narratives shaping our communities. Discover how accessible housing is a cornerstone of inclusivity, mental health finds its voice through the rhythm of music, and individuals with disabilities become agents of change. Through engaging resources and meaningful discussions, we unpack the layers of this intersectionality, fostering a deeper understanding of how these elements coalesce to create a more just world.

In the 2022 Challenge, a spectrum of critical issues converge to explore a more just and inclusive world. Participants explore interconnected topics, including closing the racial and gender wealth gap, advocating for LGBTQIA2S+ representation in media, grappling with colorism, and challenging Islamophobia in TV and film. The challenge takes a closer at critical social issues, such as period poverty, comprehensive sex education, and abortion restrictions. By engaging in curated resources and personal reflection, this challenge is a call to action, encouraging all to become advocates for equity and justice.

 

Set out on an exploration of social identities and systems of oppression through the 2021 Challenge. It dives into the intricate interplay of various levels of oppression, hate crimes, domestic violence, wealth gaps, and homelessness, shedding light on the complexities that shape our communities. Participants unpack the action of reparations, confront implicit bias, privilege, and whiteness, and foster an anti-racist mindset. We hope this  empowers you to dismantle barriers, question systemic injustices, and cultivate a more equitable and inclusive community for everyone.

The 2020 Challenge explores the nuances between equity and equality, and unravels the impact of microaggressions, stereotypes, and cultural appropriation on marginalized communities. Participants dive deeper into the intersectionality of race, gender, and identity, while also addressing the compounding effects of COVID-19 and combating xenophobia. The challenge also navigates the inequities embedded in the legal system, housing, and the school-to-prison pipeline. Engage in daily activities and curated resources that empower you to dismantle systemic barriers and foster a more just and inclusive community.
