13 DAYS OF EDUCATION
While we continue this 13 day challenge to raise money to stand against police brutality and racial profiling, we are also challenging ourselves to learn more about racial disparities in America. Complete this 13 Day Education Challenge with us as we work to better Black lives in America.
Important Note: Anti-racist work is a lifelong journey, and cannot be reduced to a 13-day challenge! We encourage you to use the resources provided, but also find more beyond this page. The humanity that exists in this world extends far beyond this website's capacity. Thank you for doing this with us.
