21-Day Racial Equity Challenge – State-wide challenge and journey

  • August 17 – September 14
  • Led by the United Way of Delaware and YWCA Delaware, the challenge is a state-wide journey (never leaving our homes) into the history of racism here at home in Delaware. The Episcopal Church in Delaware is a partner (a “challenge champion”) in this effort. A personal commitment of time (5-30 minutes a day for three weeks), an internet connection, and openness to learning are all that are required. Read more here.
  • Sign up for the challenge!

The SSO and featured guest University of Michigan Men’s Glee Club, lead by conductor Eugene Rogers, will premiere a newly commissioned fully orchestrated version of “The Seven Last Words of the Unarmed” by composer Joel Thompson, made possible in part with the support of Linda and Stuart Nelson. This is a multi-movement work honoring the lives of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant, Eric Garner, Kenneth Chamberlain, Amadou Diallo, and John Crawford.
