Local 764 21 Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge: Day 1.

Posted on August 31, 2020

Welcome to Day 1! 

Our challenge will be curated from selections on our Racial Equity Resource List that is posted below.  Each day has a different article, essay, podcast or weblink to read/view (typically taking 15-55 minutes), over the next 21 consecutive days.  Some days have 2 assignments.  The top assignment might be quick (5 minutes or less), so we added a second to fill out the day.  It has been intentionally crafted to focus on the Black American experience and the tenets of Anti-Racism.

The assignments seek to expose participants to perspectives on elements of Black history, identity and culture, and to the Black community’s experience of racism in America. They will as well as provide a beginning context on the prevalence of white privilege and white supremacy in our American society.
