The UNH Sustainability Institute and Food Solutions New England are excited to support the UNH community in launching a local version of our popular 21-Day Racial Equity Habit-Building Challenge!

 

What is the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit-Building Challenge?

The 21-Day Racial Equity Habit-Building Challenge was originally developed by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. and Debby Irving and has been adapted by Food Solutions New England. The challenge consists of daily email prompts with resources. It is designed to create dedicated time and space to build more effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership.

Who is involved?

We're excited to have broad campus support for this effort. We're working with Hospitality Services, Paul College, Department of Social Work, Department of Agriculture, Nutrition and Food Systems, the Civil Discourse Lab, Waysmeet Center, and Community, Equity, and Diversity.

Interested in planning the Challenge? Contact us! 

Why participate?

Participation in an activity like this helps us to discover how racial injustice and social injustice impact our community, to connect with one another, to identify ways to dismantle racism and become better leaders for a more just, equitable community.

This is great, I want to participate! How do I sign up?

Please sign up here! We will be updating this site with more details soon and are looking forward to offering this culture-changing work here at UNH!

If you would like to connect with this effort, please email karen.spiller@unh.edu in the UNH Sustainability Institute.
