CHALLENGE DAILY CALENDAR

The 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge has been implemented in dozens of markets across the country. To localize the content and ensure it relates to our community, more than 50 community partners – including leaders in diversity, equity and inclusion; community leaders; and human service organizations – proposed, vetted, and selected the content that will be used in our regional Challenge. See below for the focus for each day of the Challenge. You can take the Challenge at any time by downloading the daily challenge below.
