Food Solutions New England Launches Third Racial Equity Challenge

The Food Solutions New England network believes that racism must be undone in order to achieve an equitable food system and that justice must guide our food future. To engage the network in learning, normalize conversations about race and racism, and support sharing and action, Food Solutions New England is hosting its third 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge April 9-29, 2017. Participants sign up to receive 21 daily prompts by email to guide their journey.The Challenge also features an online dialogue, a set of resources to explore, and a series of related blog posts.

Everyone who is working for a just and equitable food system is invited to commit to the Challenge – to reflect on your own or to share with a group. Join hundreds of people for an exciting 21 days of learning, sharing, and connecting. SIGN UP and join the conversation #FSNEEquityChallenge.

One participant in the 2016 Racial Equity Challenge said, "The 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge put at the forefront things that were not prevalent in people's lives that do not look like me. I am completing my master's degree in Vermont and found it at times challenging to talk about race in my community. I brought the Challenge into my school community and surprisingly enough, peers were interested and signed up to complete the Challenge. We were able to have dinners on topic that the Challenge brought to us and together as a community kept each other on track to complete the Challenge."
