Until Justice Just Is

Join YWCA Dayton and take our 21-day email challenge. Pledge to take action against racism.

Building a new habit takes practice. Making social justice a habit takes a particular kind of practice.

YWCA Dayton invites the community to practice building new social justice habits this year by joining the our 6th annual 21-Day Challenge. The Until Justice Just Is racial and social justice challenge invites participants to reflect, learn, and build new habits through a 21-day email series.

The Until Justice Just Is challenge (formally known as the Stand Against Racism Challenge) starts April 6. This year’s curriculum will prompt participants with daily challenges such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experiences, and more.

Individuals can sign up below. YWCA Dayton is also encouraging businesses and organizations pledge to take the challenge and encourage their staff to participate in Until Justice Just Is. Participating businesses can email advocacy@ywcadayton.org to let YW know they are joining the challenge and to have their business name displayed on our website on our list of partners that have taken the pledge.

Join us as we rally alongside our YWCA sisters across the nation.

Until the land of the free is free of racism.
Until the home of the brave is brave enough to change.
Until “by the people” and “for the people” means doing right by ALL the people.

Until Justice Just Is.




About the 21-Day Challenge

Previously known as the Stand Against Racism Challenge, 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.

The 21-Day Equity Challenge was created by Dr. Eddie Moore Jr. (#BlackMind) and co-developed with Debby Irving and Dr. Marguerite Penick (#DiverseSolutions).  Moore created the Challenge to not only help people better understand issues surrounding equity, inclusion, privilege, leadership, and supremacy, but also to do so in a way that would build a habit of learning by stretching it over 21 days. We are excited to be offering you this 21-Day Challenge in partnership with Dr. Moore. As you engage in the various activities over the next 21 days, be sure to tag, comment, and follow @ywcadayton across all social platforms, and Dr. Moore’s 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge page on Facebook.

We also want to thank YWCA Greater Cleveland for inspiring this challenge. They, in turn, were inspired by Food Solutions New England — they were the first to adapt an exercise from Dr. Moore and Irving’s book into the interactive 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge, which they launched in 2014.

Participants will be prompted daily with challenges such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experiences, and more. Participation in an activity like this helps us to discover how racial injustice and social injustice impact our community, connect with one another, and identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.

This is an exciting opportunity to dive deep into racial equity and social justice. We hope you’ll join us and accept this challenge. Our next edition of the Challenge begins on Thursday, April 6, and continues weekdays through April 27.

On Day 1, you will receive an introductory email explaining the purpose of the challenge and your Challenge Reflection Log – a tool to ensure you are taking full advantage of what the challenge has to offer.  Follow the conversation using #YWCAEquityChallenge and #UntilJusticeJustIs.

The challenge was amazing!! It was transformative, thank you for this education. There was so much I did not know or just ignored.
