We are pleased to share this “racial equity challenge” from the Ignatian Solidarity Network. It seems like an excellent way to spend some time each day for the next 21 days starting July 20 and continuing to August 9. As we well know, the pandemic has highlighted a number of things that have been undercurrents in our country for a long time. Racism is one of these — for over 400 years. This “challenge” will help us better understand it and be part of the solution wherever we are.
For 21 days, we will be challenged to enter into the complex work of understanding the realities of racial injustice and anti-Blackness in the U.S. The Ignatian Racial Equity Challenge is designed for all participants, regardless of race, ethnicity, prior anti-racism work, age or background and will include opportunities to learn, pray, and act on different themes of racial equity.
