The United Way is sponsoring a 21 Day Racial Equity Challenge in the Rochester Area. Over 80,000 community members and 400 organizations are uniting to learn and grow together. The Paralegal Association of Rochester, Inc. (PAR) has joined the challenge. The challenge runs from October 23, 2020 through November 20, 2020.

Although PAR has "missed" the first five days of this challenge, participants can go back and complete the "missed" challenges!

This is a great opportunity for personal growth on topics that are difficult to discuss, but extremely relevant.

The challenge is free. Please join the challenge to develop a deeper understanding of race, equity, and inclusion. The more we openly and honestly address these difficult issues, the more we create a welcoming, respectful and safe environment for everyone in the community.

Receive an email every weekday at 10AM thru November 20 with links to recommended articles, videos, podcasts, reflections and more.

Daily topics include Understanding Bias, Levels of Racism, Housing Inequities, Building a Race Equity Culture and many more.

Go to: ROCequitychallenge.org to sign up and join PAR in the 21 Day Racial Equity Challenge. Each day's challenge is posted on the Challenge Daily Calendar (below) so you can participate in past offerings as well as current challenges.
