Example Challenge: 
"Option 1: Consider this model of socialization and look at the different forces at play that reinforce attitudes and beliefs, and also at what can create new patterns.
Option 2: Look at the resources on the RESilience website and see what catches your interest.
Option 3: Listen to some of the stories on the EmbraceRace website that speak to how racial socialization shapes our individual and collective lives."
