Here you will find the instructions and daily activities for the challenge. The goal is to complete one activity per day in order to build the habit. The challenge is self-guided and if you have joined the challenge after it has begun, don’t worry! You can always catch up or simply start the activities on the day you join.
Choose an Activity: On each day of the challenge, you will be invited to complete a short activity (typically taking approximately 15-30 minutes) from the themes of Read, Watch, Listen. Each activity is to help increase your understanding of elements of race and systemic racism against people of color in the USA. The activities are meant to be done in a short period of time to allow time for reflection. However, if you would like to spend additional time in exploration, there are longer options each week to do a “deep dive”.
Connect: While the zoom meetings have concluded, there are still opportunities to connect with others who have participated in the challenge. If you are interested in being added to the email group, please Email Julie
