Participate in the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge April 9-29

March 31, 2017
by Caitlin Szymanski, Program Coordinator

Save the date and consider making the commitment to participate online and at your own pace. April 9-29 is the 2017 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge!

Food Solutions New England is facilitating this great opportunity again this year. It can help us all create dedicated time and space to learn more about issues of power, privilege and leadership. And we can consider how to better engage in the complex problems that exist in our food systems.

I hope you will join me, several extension colleagues (in Iowa and across the country), and other local food system practitioners. It’s an important opportunity to help us all become better leaders for a more just, equitable food system in Iowa and beyond!

You can learn more about this challenge and how to take part below and at this link.  If you are interested in exploring additional resources on these topics after the challenge is over, make sure to check out our webpage, Inequities in the Food System.
