As part of this year’s virtual Martin Luther King, Jr. Legacy Day celebration, we are offering this seven-day challenge to encourage you to expand your awareness and deepen your commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.
From learning about yourself and your own identities, to developing interpersonal skills, to addressing everyday oppression, there are many ways that we can contribute to forward movement towards a more equitable and inclusive society.
For this challenge, we encourage you to choose one or two of the recommended options for each daily challenge to complete. If you have time, do more. Take the time to reflect as you complete each of the activities, taking notice of what you have learned, what emotions come up for you, and how you have shifted your perspective.
The goal is not to complete every action item in this challenge, as equity and justice are lifelong quests on which we must all embark. We encourage you to continue your learning and engagement beyond these seven days and deepen your commitment beyond this celebration.
This challenge was inspired by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr.’s 21-Day Equity Challenge, with some elements adapted from the Winters Group, Inc. 21 Days of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice Calendar.
