WHAT IS THE STAND AGAINST RACISM CHALLENGE?

Formerly known as the 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge, the Stand Against Racism 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.

YWCA’s Stand Against Racism is our FREE 21-day community-wide challenge part of a national movement to end racial inequities. It is South Florida’s largest collective learning experience. Your support will bring this purposeful program to life and show your commitment to making South Florida the country’s most inclusive and equitable place to live.

Based on the premise that it takes 21 days to build a habit, YWCA has structured the initiative as a 21-day virtual learning challenge called Stand Against Racism (SAR). The purpose of the experience is to help individuals and businesses develop more effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with race, power, and leadership. YWCA’s platform creates a safe space each day for the people of South Florida to learn, grow, listen and discuss the deep-seated issues of systemic racism and inequities plaguing communities of color.

HOW THE CHALLENGE WORKS

When the Challenge starts on April 4, 2022, participants will log on to the Challenge app on their phone or visit the Challenge website and are presented with challenges such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experience, and more. Participation in an activity like this helps us to discover how racial injustice and social justice impact our community, connect with one another, identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.

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. Participants are presented with daily challenges via email that invites them to choose one of three options such as:

  • Reading an article
  • Watching a video
  • Reflecting on personal experience

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 actionable ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.

This is an exciting opportunity to dive deep into racial equity and social justice and to set the stage for moving forward with an actionable change that helps fulfill YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism and empower women.
