The goal of eliminating racism in Minnesota and beyond is within our reach. It begins with conversation, and it’s propelled by action.
Join YWCA in its mission to break through the barriers that perpetuate racism. It’s Time to Act!TM is a forum series that engages participants for deeper learning and action planning around issues of race, equity, identity and social justice.
The forums are a catalyst for changemaking, where attendees take a deep dive into issues affecting our community and are inspired to identify their own role and power to create change. Pairing lectures with intentional action planning, it is an opportunity for attendees to move from talk to action.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our 2021 It’s Time to Act! series will be hosted virtually.
