Each 21-Day Habit Building Action Plan is a set of tools you choose from to get started skill-building, knowledge gaining, and behavior changing related to inequities stemming from power and white supremacy. There is no pre-work needed. You start where you are by selecting content that resonates with you.
The materials address social justice, racial injustice, gender issues, transgender issues, issues across class and religion and Moore. Even as you are reading this, we are at work developing more challenges!
It is important to note that the materials are honest and real. A visceral reaction may occur with one or Moore daily activities. Do not let this deter you; lean in, reflect, and keep learning. The action plans are not about making people feel bad; it’s about us doing better – ALL of us.
This is a skill-building and habit-building tool and the more you do it, just like any habit, the better you’ll get. The daily activities are meant to fit into your schedule not take you away or ask that you make space for them. In committing to the challenge, you are committing to skill-building. Materials cross generational, racial, and gender lines, which is to be expected as these intersect when discussing inequities.
What we now know from the research is that 21 days is only a beginning. The actual amount of time it takes to build a habit or change a habit is over 60 days. Think of the 21-Days as a kickoff to the goal of doing one thing a day for the rest of your life. The hope is that with enough of us reaching this goal, we will create systemic, organization change throughout the world.
Below are the elements included in each 21-Day Habit Building Action Plan. Additionally, we have provided resources to keep track, reflect, and engage with others. Then you will select which challenge interests you and get started. Then come back and select a new challenge! Moore challenges are being developed.
