21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge ©

On February 8, the ABA Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council has launched their “ABA-Wide 21-Day Racial Equity Habit-Building Challenge ©,” and will continue every day for the remainder of Black History Month.  This Challenge is “ABA-Wide” because the syllabus includes submissions of relevant resources, including ABA-published ones, from several Sections, Divisions, Forums, and Commissions.  This version of the Challenge represents collaboration and collective engagement across the ABA’s entities on the topic of racial equity.

The Challenge intentionally takes place during Black History Month and is focused on resources uplifting Black (lawyer) experiences, combating anti-Black racism, and educating us on Black history.  Additional resources and optional discussion questions are also available on the website, to provide opportunity for reflection, dialogue, and deeper engagement on the critical topics within the Challenge.

Please also consider pledging to participate in the Challenge.  There will be additional information about discussion questions and regular reminders about the Challenge sent to pledges’ inboxes. Learn more at ambar.org/ABA21DayREChallenge.
