21-Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge and 18th Annual Race Against Racism 

What is the 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge? 
Once again, we'll lead up to the 18th Annual Race Against Racism with our 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge, starting April 1!
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.
You will be presented with challenges such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, watching a video, 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. We hope you will join us on this journey and we can’t wait to get started!
Create a team
The YWCA believes in an inclusive environment. Engaging others in a common goal adds to the good of our society.
We think the Challenge is one of the most powerful interventions an organization can do to build community and create an inclusive culture.
The Challenge can lead to transformative results, including:
  • Building new, positive habits that can change ourselves, our teams, our organizations and our communities.
  • Taking small actions alongside one another to create momentum and a sense of teamwork.
  • Creating a profound, elevating experience to increase the likelihood that participants will take action.
  • Participating in meaningful conversations about racism and social justice.
How can my organization get involved? 
Here are some ideas to get you started:
• Host a launch event to generate excitement and introduce participants to the benefits and goals of the Challenge.
• Encourage participants to use the reflection log provided in the program, and teams can meet weekly to discuss and reflect on the Challenge together.
Questions to explore could include:
– How did the activities make you feel?
– What actions have you taken based on the activities?
– What actions would you like to take?
– What further resources (reading, research, tools, and/or strategies) do you need to take action?

Race Against Racism 2021
We’re going virtual again this year for the 18th Annual Race Against Racism from April 1-April 30. The race supports the YWCA's mission to eliminate racism, empower women and girls, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. The funds we raise are crucial to sustaining our racial justice programs throughout the year ahead. 
Participation can be done wherever they are—on a treadmill, on a rails to trails path, around a track, or even the race course!
