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.  This race benefits Challenging Racism, an Arlington based non-profit dedicated to empowering people to disrupt racism wherever they find it. This ability develops through our series of planned, facilitated conversations built upon facts, stories, reflection and relationships, along with learning the essential skills of listening and holding difficult conversations.​
