21 Day Equity Building Challenge

In honoring Black History Month and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we are very excited to launch the 21-Day Forman School Equity Habit Building Challenge this Monday, February 1st.

The goal of this Challenge is to deepen our understanding of identity, diversity, and dialogue and allow for each participant to use daily self-reflection through art, writing, movement, and action. The self-reflection is done through a Choice Board and you can reflect as many times in as many ways as works best for you. In this Challenge we are striving to think about racial equity beyond the confines of a day or month, but rather enmeshed into the fabric and character of our daily lives. Students at Forman consistently learn that it takes 21 days to build a habit and 90 days to create a lifestyle. It is our hope that all members of the Forman community will participate in this Challenge as we break down systems of oppression that have been present in our world for far too long.

Here are some quick facts about the Equity Habit Building Challenge:

  • Over a 21-day period, you will have the opportunity to spend 15 minutes or less daily to expand your understanding of building more equitable lifelong habits.
  • The Choice Board will guide your daily self-reflection through the Challenge. Each option challenges you to reflect in a different way–through art, writing, movement, or action. You may repeat an option as many times as you would like.
