YWCA Spokane’s 14-Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge For 2021
This #YWCAEquityChallenge was originally developed by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. and Debby Irving and has been adapted by many organizations across the country. Our local challenge was brought to you by YWCA Spokane’s Racial and Social Justice Committee and 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.
This challenge is accessible to anyone interested in learning more about racial equity and social justice and examining these issues in our own communities. This is an opportunity to dive deeper into racial equity and social justice. Thank you for accepting this challenge!

The 2021 Equity Challenge
Each challenge includes prompts suggesting you take a few moments each day to build more effective social justice habits by reading an article, listening to a podcast, or reflecting on a personal experience.
This 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.
Consider inviting your friends, family, and co-workers to join you in powerful and courageous dialog and action by moving through the below challenge topics together.

June of last year, we launched our very first racial equity and social justice challenge with great success. Over 600 people registered and many let us know they planned to share the challenge with their teams at work and with friends and family. We estimate that 1000 community members joined us! We received powerful feedback from many participants who took the challenge. We are so grateful this free resources has provided value to our community.
The 2020 Equity Challenge is still very relevant. If you have not taken it, or would like to take it again, you are welcome to do so. All the resources can be found through the below link.
