YWCA Central Alabama is hosting the 21-Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge in Alabama to further our mission of eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. The premise of the event is to do one action every weekday for 21 days to further your understanding of power, privilege, oppression, and equity.
Some call it a social media takeover, while others describe it as a digital megaphone to amplify the voices of women of color. White women of influence across the nation are giving Black women access to their social media platforms, or sharing the mic, for a day.
Destiny Askew, a member of the YWCA Central Alabama Building Communities, Bettering Lives AmeriCorps program, is literally growing during the COVID-19 pandemic. While abiding by stay-at-home restrictions, Askew has repurposed some of her time to thrive in her home garden while teaching Girls, Inc. students.
