2023 IATSE 21 Day Challenge

Welcome to the 2023 IATSE Racial Justice 21-Day Habit Forming Challenge. To celebrate Black History Month 2023 we present our third 21-Day Challenge collection. These challenges offer a path to learn, discern, discuss, and take actions that promote inclusion and equity – two bedrock union values – for all in our communities. The original 21-day challenge was created by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. https://www.eddiemoorejr.com/.

The 21-Day Challenge structure offers an opportunity for IATSE membership to expand our understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion. During the challenge, participants read, listen, observe, or watch something every day for 21 consecutive days to further their understanding of power, privilege, racism, exclusion, and equity. The structure is designed for individual learning, but when many union members take the challenge together, we become a stronger, more powerful Alliance.

This year, the theme of Black History Month is “Resistance.” Our collection begins with a broad view of this theme from a historian’s perspective – highlighting centuries of aspiration and its impact on policy, progress, and culture. The challenge weaves history together with entertainment related topics and also makes detours into issues such as politics and climate. To download the 2023 IATSE 21-Day Challenge, click here.
