In support of our 8th Principle work, please join the Social Action Committee for a 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge©. The challenge runs from October 11 through October 31st and will help us make a habit out of anti-racist thinking and behavior.

Have you ever made a successful change in your life? Perhaps you wanted to exercise more, make more healthy food choices, get organized, or change jobs? Think about the time and attention you dedicated to the process. A lot, right? Change is hard. Creating effective social justice habits – particularly those dealing with issues of power, privilege, supremacy, and leadership – is like any lifestyle change. Setting our intentions and adjusting what we spend our time doing is essential. It’s all about building new habits.

This 21-Day Challenge will further our understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity and help us develop a habit of anti-racist thinking and behavior.

When you join the challenge, beginning on October 11 you’ll receive via text or email one daily activity to complete, such as reading, watching a video, exploring resource-rich websites, taking action, reflecting, etc. We’ll also meet 2 Sundays via zoom from 6:30 – 7:30 PM as a group to reflect on we’re learning and how we’re feeling.

To join, send an email to 8thPrinciple@uuclvpa.org by October 4th. Be sure to include if you would like to get your daily activity sent to you via text or email, or both, and include the phone number and/or email address for us to use.

This 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge uses the framework created by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr, and Debby Irving, which you can learn more about here.
