2023 Racial Justice Challenge @ Virtual Event
Sep 18 – Sep 29 all-day

What To Expect

A new challenge will be shared via email Monday – Friday each week. As each day is released, the content will be made available at ywcaspokane/challenge.

The Racial Justice Challenge was designed to help community members dedicate time and space within their schedules to build more effective social justice habits, particularly around issues dealing with race, power, privilege, and leadership.

Each challenge includes daily prompts suggesting to take a few moments to dive into an article, podcast, or reflect on a personal experience.

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

Sign Up To Take The Racial Justice 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.
