21-Day Racial Equity Challenge,
August 17 to September 6
Bishop Brown calls us all to take part in a 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge from August 17 to September 6, 2020. Led by the United Way of Delaware and YWCA Delaware, the challenge is a state-wide journey (never leaving our homes) into the history of racism here at home in Delaware. The Episcopal Church in Delaware is a partner (a “challenge champion”) in this effort. A personal commitment of time (5-30 minutes a day for three weeks), an internet connection, and openness to learning are all that are required.
