I know the time to eradicate racism is NOW and I boldly act with urgency!!
While many of us desire to be the change we'd like to see in the world, when it comes to issues of race it can be challenging for non-People of Color (POC) to know how to discuss it, how to be about it, and what to DO to affect that change. And yet, this is work that must be done.
Learn how to create effective racial equity building habits. We invite you to join with the Center for Spiritual Awareness (CSA) as together we take part in the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge. This challenge was originally developed by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. and Debby Irving and has been adapted by many organizations across the country. The challenge is 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.
Our challenge starts on Monday, June 15th and continues through July 5th, 2020. Enroll anytime.
You've probably heard it takes 21 days to build a new habit, right? Building habits to affect lasting change social justice, dealing with issues of power and privilege can feel especially hard because it can be confronting and confusing.
