Florida Race Equity Challenge


What is the Florida Race Equity Challenge?

Florida’s race equity challenge is a web-based experience that will provide collaborative groups with the education and tools to identify and tackle issues related to race, equity, and inclusion (REI) within the juvenile justice system. We will combine passion with action and challenge participants to affect meaningful change. Teams will learn, participate, and compete for statewide recognition.




Breakthrough Video Competition

The Florida Race Equity Challenge asked circuit teams to share a video summary of their experience. Teams were encouraged to share: their thoughts about the Challenge, biggest "aha" moments, ways the challenge has change their personal and professional perspective, and a general idea of any initiatives their circuit has chosen to implement as a result.

These videos have been submitted as a part of the Breakthrough Video Competition. Participating teams will vote during circuit meetings to determine the recipient of the "Best Breakthrough Video" award.
