The City of Alexandria and ACT for Alexandria are proud to offer the first community “30-Day Racial Equity Challenge,” and invites community members to join in.
The 30-Day Racial Equity Challenge is an educational tool used to advance deeper understanding of the intersections of race, power, privilege, supremacy and oppression. The Challenge invites participants to complete 30 short assignments, over 30 consecutive days, which include readings, videos or podcasts. The goal is to increase knowledge and understanding and engage people as we continue our racial equity journey.
Participation is completely voluntary, and participants are free to start at their own pace and opt out of participating along the way.
The 30-Day Racial Equity Challenge is only an introduction to what we hope will be a growing and learning experience in our journey to achieving race and social equity for all Alexandrians. Visit alexandria.gov/Equity for more information about the ALL Alexandria equity initiative.
Facilitated conversations for the subsequent weeks of participation are scheduled for four consecutive Wednesday's at 7 p.m. starting June 16th, 2021.
