As part of IDP's ongoing commitment to creating a fair and equitable world, our community is participating in the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge, from January 16-February 5. This exercise, developed by Dr. Eddie Moore Jr. and Debby Irving, is designed to help white people understand systemic racism, privilege, and power.  By making a daily commitment to learn about racism, take action against oppression, and practice awareness of how privilege operates in our lives, we can all learn to more effectively support and engage in racial justice.

Everyone can participate in the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge  - it’s free and just requires a few minutes of your time each day. We’ll begin on January 16, which is also Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  Renee Bochman, IDP’s board chairman, will lead the group.   

What: You commit to furthering your connection to understanding and addressing racism for 21 consecutive days.   

When:  In honor of MLK Day, we’ll begin on January 16-February 5.

How:  

  • Set aside a little time each day for the challenge: learn, read, talk, or take action. Respond to the daily posts at the IDP Blog and check out our resource list on the blog.

  • Follow the IDP blog to visit the Racial Equity Challenge posts, where you can view past prompts and other participants' comments, share your own reflections, and join the conversation.

We understand how challenging this work can be, which is why we’re doing it together to support and encourage each other.  We’re looking forward to your comments and discussion on the Racial Equity Challenge site, and you’re encouraged to share on Facebook and/or Twitter, too, with hashtag #IDPEquityChallenge.

This special initiative is open to everyone and free of charge.  As a not-for-profit organization, IDP is supported by the generosity of our community. Please become a Member or make a donation today to support this and other initiatives like this. 100% of our income comes from individual members and students.
