We wanted to create a dynamic resource for our community for the 21-Day Equity Challenge. What is the challenge? The 21-Day Equity 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. The daily prompts will raise your awareness, change your understanding and shift the way you think and behave.  Each day is catalogued below to continue your self-guided learning journey.
