Racial Justice & Civil Rights

Racism affects everyone regardless of what we look like.  The elimination of racism is an on-going process that requires persistence, commitment and continuing racial dialogue between individuals and groups.  The YWCA is committed to helping individuals, organizations and companies in the Lower Cape Fear region improve race relations and find ways to eliminate racism through constructive dialogue and meaningful action.
