21-Day Racial Equity Habit-Building Challenge©Lolly Belanger
The ABA Section of Public Contract Law is sharing some resources and an opportunity for members to participate in a 21-Day Racial Equity and Habit Building Challenge© (the “21- Day Challenge©”). The 21-Day Challenge was conceived of several years ago by diversity expert Eddie Moore, Jr. to advance deeper understandings of the intersections of race, power, privilege, supremacy and oppression. Two other ABA groups have undertaken similar 21-Day Challenges — the Labor & Employment Law Section & the Judicial Division.
The 21-Day Challenge invites participants to complete a syllabus of short daily assignments (typically taking 15 – 30 minutes), over 21 consecutive days. In addition to certain readings focused on the Black American experience, including perspectives on Black history, identity and culture, and the experience of anti-Black racism in America, there are assignments that focus on the unique experience of Black lawyers in America, as well as assignments that explore how lawyers of all races can and must share in the work of bringing greater racial equity to the legal profession.
