About the Challenge

In June 2020, the Council of the ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law announced its participation in the “21-Day Racial Equity Habit-Building Challenge ©,” and invited other section members to join the challenge.

Conceived several years ago by diversity expert Eddie Moore, Jr., the Challenge is designed to advance deeper understandings of the intersections of race, power, privilege, supremacy and oppression, and assist each of us in becoming more aware, compassionate, constructive, engaged people in the quest for racial equity.


The Challenge invites participants to complete a syllabus of 21 short exercises (typically taking 15-30 minutes), over 21 consecutive days, that include readings, videos, or podcasts.

The Challenge was intentionally crafted to focus on the Black American experience. The assignments seek to expose participants to perspectives on elements of Black history, identity and culture, and to the Black community’s experience of racism in America. Even this focus on Black Americans cannot possibly highlight all of the diversity of experiences and opinions within the Black community itself, much less substitute for learnings about any other community of color.

Participation in the Challenge is Voluntary. Participation shall not be construed as agreement with every word of every assignment nor a commitment by any person to a particular professional position or strategy.


Sunday March 21, 7:00 to 9:00 PM, Program Launch
Introduction and a Virtual Showing of Documentary:

TRUE JUSTICE: BRYAN STEVENSON’S FIGHT FOR EQUALITY examines the personal journey of Bryan Stevenson, a public defender in Alabama and director of the Equal Justice Initiative, who is working to bring justice to the incarcerated, wrongfully convicted and disadvantaged. This film weaves together Stevenson’s own story, those of his clients, and a history of injustice and complicity by our justice system to reveal how a narrative of racial inequality emerged in this country. Bryan challenges us to seek the truth, confront it, and work towards reconciliation.
