What is the Challenge about? Take 21 days to challenge yourself to learn something new, do something meaningful or connect with others about racial equity. Each day, the Charlye O. Farris Social Justice Resource Center will offer recommendations on something to read, a podcast to listen to, an organization to follow; but, you can choose your own adventure! Just pick one thing each day to increase your awareness, reflect on your role in promoting racial equity or motivate yourself to act.
This activity is sponsored by the Charlye O. Farris Social Justice Resource Center. The purpose of the Charlye O. Farris Social Justice Resource Center (SJRC) is to serve as a hub of education and advocacy. We strive to build community connections around the issues of racial and social justice through activities encouraging reflection and dialogue. We provide training and development opportunities for community leaders and business partners focused on improving equity and inclusion in their organizations.
