MARCH 30-APRIL 19, 2020


The 21 Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge is for people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds seeking to deepen their understanding of institutional racism, systems of power and privilege, and contemporary thought on working towards racial equity.

The Challenge is made up of small daily email prompts delivered each morning from March 30 through April 20 and is an opportunity to commit to daily learning and action on understanding and dismantling racism in our lives, work, and personal relationships. The Challenge includes food system learning materials but covers a broad range of topics beyond food as well. To supplement the learning materials offered by Food Solutions New England, we have gathered additional learning resources, including Wisconsin specific resources, which are available on the Learning About Equity: A Resource List page. The flexible program approach allows each participant to tailor their learning from their own starting point. As such, each participant will get out of the Challenge what they are able to put into it. You may want to consider taking the Challenge experience from the individual level to a group or community level. A group or community approach allows for collective sense-making and will help you discover new ways of thinking, deepen understanding and increase shared learning. We all have different experiences and gifts as well as biases and blind spots or learning gaps; a team approach can invite us to expand beyond our usual comfort zone.

During the Challenge you will receive a daily email prompt with a short reading, video or audio file. You are encouraged to take about ten to fifteen minutes each day to engage with the material.
