21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge

A- A A+

The 2021 YWCA Greater Pittsburgh 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge took place March 1-March 29, 2021.


The 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge was 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.

In 2021, 726 of our Greater Pittsburgh neighbors joined the challenge. Each day, they were presented with activities such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, or reflecting on personal experiences to help identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.

Below is an archive of materials from the 2021 Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge. We invite you to engage with and share these resources. They are intended to help you discover how racial and social injustices impact our communities and learn more about what you can do about it.
