What is the 21 Day Racial Equity Challenge?
The 21 Day Racial Equity Challenge is a self-guided daily learning experience that exists to build our community’s awareness of how racism impacts the work and lives of every Greenville citizen.
The 21 Day Racial Equity Challenge was created to give Greenvillians an opportunity to learn more about the history and impacts of racism and racial inequities. The purpose of the racial equity challenge is not simply to increase knowledge about racism, but also to deepen our collective commitment to racial equity.
The Racial Equity Challenge is a commitment to devote 20-30 minutes a day for 21 days to learn about the history and impacts of racism in Greenville County and the different ways that racism shows up in the lives of every Greenville resident.
The 21 Day Racial Equity Challenge is an enlightening journey for everyone – regardless of your base level of knowledge or race. Along with new perspectives, you’ll receive examples and tools of how you can help undo racism and build racial equity and justice.
Our Summer Challenge will begin on Monday, June 21. This is the Monday after Juneteenth – an annual holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States, has been celebrated by African-Americans since the late 1800s.
The Challenge is being facilitated by the Greenville Partnership for Philanthropy and the NonProfit Alliance with the support of the Jolley Foundation and Hollingsworth Funds.
Our Summer Challenge will begin on Monday, June 21 and end on Tuesday, July 20
If you are unable to participate in this challenge, you can join us in August or October for those challenges.
August: August 2 – August 30
October: October 1 – 31
