Please join us for a very special community event!
Challenging Racism is proud to host Running Against Racism, our first 5K run/walk to honor heroes of Arlington’s history who have challenged racism and who serve as an inspiration to us every day. Proceeds from the race will support our mission to expand Challenging Racism’s anti-racism education every year through more conversations and more trained facilitators in more locations.
