Food Justice & Equity: 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Builiding Challenge
From April 5th to the 25th join together with thousands of people on a shared journey of learning, expanding your knowledge, and charting a course of action to dismantle racism in our food system and our world!
During every morning of the Challenge, you'll receive an email "prompt" with a short reading, video or audio file. You are encouraged to take about ten to fifteen minutes each day with the material in the prompt, though we will provide extra resources in case you want to dig further into the day's topic. You have the option to log into online forums if you'd like to discuss the prompts in a supported and moderated environment. We also encourage you to share your experience on social media using the hashtag #FSNEEquityChallenge.
About the Challenge
You commit to deepening your understanding of, and willingness to confront, racism for twenty-one consecutive days in April of 2021. The Challenge will raise your awareness, change your understanding and shift the way you behave.
However, the Challenge goes beyond individual or interpersonal racism by helping to demystify structural and institutional racism and white supremacist patterns that are sometimes invisible to people. Finally, the Challenge inspires you to act, on your own or with others in your organization, business or group, to dismantle these systems, to make changes in your work and the world that can build true equity and justice for all.
BGSU Center for Public Impact will help lead discussions based on the material provided through this challenge.
