Stand Against Racism Challenge - YWCA

Join us for Stand Against Racism!

a 21-day Online Challenge

It takes 21 days to form a habit. We challenge you to make active antiracism a habit by accepting the Stand Against Racism Challenge. Whether this is your first step to racial equity, or you are a social justice expert, this year’s Stand Against Racism Challenge is full of all-new, actionable steps to create change in our communities.

Commit to antiracism and register for the challenge now!

*Available in English or Español*


Stand Against Racism Challenge 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.

Participants will download the Stand Against Racism App for their phone/tablet or log into the challenge website and are then presented with 21 days of impactful challenges such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experience and more. Participation in an activity like this helps us to discover how racial injustice and social injustice impact our community, to connect with one another, and to identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.

YWCA Olympia wants to thank and acknowledge Dr. Eddie Moore Jr., Debby Irving, and Dr. Marguerite Penick for their leadership in the field of racial equity as exhibited in their 21 Day Racial Equity and Habit Building Challenge and the movement they helped to initiate. YWCA’s content is independently designed, written, and curated by YWCA staff as part of racial equity and social justice programs offered to the community.

We Understand and acknowledge that the word “Stand” can be used as ableist language. In an effort towards accountability to another group using the name “Rise Against Racism,” we have decided to stick with the original branding for this national YWCA event. Our intention is to be inclusive to every individual interested in anti-racism work with zero intent to discriminate.
