YWCA Hawai‘i, Kaua‘i, and O‘ahu launch their 21-Day Racial Justice Challenge, “Until Justice Just Is,” on Monday, April 17, 2023 as part of a national movement to engage communities to educate themselves and confront the legacy of racism in America. The Hawai‘i YWCA affiliates will also incorporate materials that address local racial justice issues.
The YWCA 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. The Challenge works to foster personal reflection, encourage social responsibility, and motivate participants to find and act on ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.
For four weeks, daily challenge activities (reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experiences, etc.) are posted in the Challenge app and website allowing participants to discover how racial injustice and social injustice impact our community, connect with one another, and identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination. Each week covers a different topic related to equity and social justice. Daily activities are not posted on the weekends.
Registration for the challenge is open now at bit.ly/ujjihawaii2023.
