Stand Against Racism 2019

Join Us April 25 - 28

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 year’s theme is NO HATE. NO FEAR. Immigrant Justice is Racial Justice. And, we are focusing on systemic racism related to immigration in Minnesota and across the United States.

Join us and thousands of people across the country to take action this week!

We are inviting individuals in our community to participate this week by visibly taking a stand against racism, discrimination and injustice.
