Participate in the CNY 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge

The Syracuse University School of Education is proud to be a Participating Partner in the CNY 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge. United Way of Central New York, in partnership with the YWCA, is launching the challenge community wide on October 1, 2020.

We are encouraging all students, employees, and alumni to take this challenge and consider challenging issues like race, power, and privilege in our communities — and the role our experiences play in shaping our views.

Each day, challenge participants will receive an email message on a specific topic, with links to related media. The message and media will help guide open-minded participants on their journey towards improving themselves, and their community, through an act of collective self-discovery.

The challenge will conclude on October 21st, with “A Community Conversation with Dr. Ibram X. Kendi” presented by The Friends of the Central Library.

The CNY 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge is modeled on a program originally created by diversity experts Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr., and Debby Irving.
