Join the Fight Against Racism

In the wake of George Floyd’s killing, many in our community are yearning to drive change and break the cycle of systemic racism. In response to that need, we invite you to take YWCA St. Paul’s 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge by signing-up to receive a daily email that will support you in your efforts to learn more about racial equity and social justice.

You’ll receive free curated articles, podcasts, activities and much more – delivered straight to your inbox! Emails will start Monday, June 29 and continue every weekday (Monday – Friday) through July 24.

Taking part in an activity like this helps participants discover how racial inequity and social injustice impact our community, while connecting with others and identifying ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.

Studies have shown that it takes 21 days to form a habit – with this email series, we hope to help you break free of old thought patterns, while developing skills that will last a lifetime. Join us here on this journey over the next month and find ways that you can become part of the work against racism!
