Sign up for the Racial Justice Challenge through the YWCA Northeast Kansas. The video chat Zoom links are within the Events in the Racial Justice Challenge.
Participate in the Challenge by reading, listening and watching the material each day of the week.
Week 1 Disability – June 5-9
Week 2 Housing – June 12-16
Week 3 Music – June 19-23
Week 4 Mental Health – June 26-30
Questions to explore as you reflect on the reading, listening and learning from this week:
How did the activities make you feel?
What actions have you taken based on the activities?
What actions would you like to take?
What further resources do you need to take action? Reading, research, tools, and/or strategies?
The Racial Justice 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. Each day of the challenge you will be presented with activities 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 injustice impact our community, to connect with one another, and to identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.
We hope that you will go into this challenge with an open heart and an open mind, ready to be pushed out of your comfort zone. We know these discussions can be difficult and can bring up powerful emotions, but your commitment to increasing your awareness is what will help move our community forward.
