It's Time to Act!™
Racism and Sexism: Revealing the Intersectionality
Join YWCA in its mission to break through the barriers that perpetuate racism. It’s Time to Act! is a four-act forum series that will empower participants to engage in deeper conversations around race, equity, faith and social justice issues. You will hear from experts who will inspire you to intentionally take action on equity issues in your surrounding community.
Honest conversations about race allow us to find common ground and develop trusting relationships that make it possible to move toward a more equitable community together. The experts brought together for It’s Time to Act! have dedicated their work to fueling these conversations. They’ll lead the way for attendees to create a step-by-step action plan as part of a cohort or as an individual.
