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.
