Social and Racial Justice and the Wisconsin MRSEC

The MRSEC Executive Committee has chosen to undertake the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge. The challenge is to take at least one action per day for twenty-one days to build equity and justice. What does that look like? The Challenge website provides a long list of resources, from articles and books to read, podcasts to listen to, and documentaries and interviews to watch, to organizations to connect with and activities to focus our attention on the racial context of the world around us. The Executive Committee commits to tracking our progress on the Challenge and to using it to help us form new habits of mind that will inform future decision making for the center.
