Please join the Center for Rural Affairs as we embark on the Food Solutions New England 21-Day Racial Equity Habit-Building Challenge together.
As an organization, we are committed to understanding and undoing racism in our food system. By taking the challenge, made up of small daily email prompts delivered each morning from March 30 through April 20, we can all easily participate in this transformative effort at our own pace.
So, what exactly is the challenge?
It is a self-guided learning journey examining the history and impacts of racism and how it is connected to our food systems, as well as examples and tools on how to undo racism and build racial equity and food justice.
How does the challenge work?
People sign up (you can register here) and then, starting March 30, those who have signed up will receive daily email prompts focused on a different theme along with links to related resources (readings, video, audio) that take about 10 to 15 minutes each day.
In addition, there is a robust resource list for people to look through and continue their learning.
Those who register also have access to an online discussion forum for anyone who wants to talk and think out loud about the daily prompts and other learning along the way.
