Stand Against Racism

The Stand Against Racism is an annual event of the YWCA held in April. By participating in this event, you help raise awareness that racism still exists in our communities and that it should no longer be tolerated. We seek to bring people together across communities for one common goal- the elimination of racism. We ask you to make your voice heard by joining the Stand Against Racism. Our strength is YOU!


April 26th - April 30th, 2017

 This year's theme: Women of Color Leading Change

Stand Against Racism is a signature campaign of YWCA USA to build community among those who work for racial justice and to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in our communities. This campaign is one part of our larger national strategy to fulfill our mission of eliminating racism.
