21-Day Race and Equity Challenge
Educate yourself about race and equity. Challenge yourself to read, watch, or listen to one thing about race and equity topics every day for 21 days. For three weeks we will post daily suggested articles, podcasts, videos, and actions you can take to educate yourself and be antiracist. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to participate, and download this handy log to track your learning.
This 21-day challenge is a tie-in to “Book to Action,” a community-wide program from the California Center for the Book to Read/Discuss/Act during the months of March-June. The programming is centered around the Book The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett. We will be hosting two book discussions and a number of online programs around the issues this book brings up: race identity, transgender identity, colorism, passing, among others.
