The National Association of State Judicial Educators (NASJE) has launched an exciting new justice initiative to bring a customized version of a highly respected program to its members. The NASJE 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge seeks to have participants not only identify issues of racial equity, but also to consider how they can help address racism and bias in the justice system.
Some NASJE members may already be familiar with Dr. Eddie Moore Jr.’s 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge© which provides resources—such as suggested readings, podcasts, and videos—to further participants’ understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity and, ultimately, to help participants form and deepen community connections. This program, which Dr. Moore designed in 2014, has been used by individuals and large organizations throughout the United States. NASJE was honored to have Dr. Moore speak at its 2021 National Conference in New Haven, Connecticut, about this innovative program.
Unlike the original Challenge and the version created for the American Bar Association, this specific NASJE Challenge will be tailored for use by judges and court staff, as well as justice partners. All NASJE members will be advised of the launch date and will be given further information on how to participate at that time.
NASJE wishes to thank Michael Roosevelt, Co-Chair of NASJE’s Diversity, Fairness, and Access Committee, and Past NASJE President Janice Calvi-Ruimerman who, along with a group of members committed to the inclusion of issues of racial equity in judicial education, have been working with Dr. Moore to create this special program.
