The deep-seated systemic racism and inequities that disadvantage communities of color are still woven into the fabric of our institutions today—from civic engagement to economic opportunity and security, from education to health care, and even the way people of color are portrayed in the media. We must work collectively to root out inequity in our communities and in the institutions that compose our society, and demand justice and equity.
We take a Stand Against Racism every day by raising awareness about the impact of institutional and structural racism and by building community among those who work for racial justice. YWCA USA’s 16th annual Stand Against Racism campaign takes place April 28 – May 1, 2022. Join us for It’s Time to Act!™ in May and find other events hosted by YWCAs across the country at standagainstracism.org.
Join us in taking YWCA USA’s Stand Against Racism Challenge. During this 21-day challenge, you will receive an email asking you to view that day’s content. When you sign up, you will receive your first email, which will prompt you to login to the challenge website or download/open the challenge app.
Please note: You will receive daily emails for the remainder of the first round (through May 2). If you begin the challenge after May 2, you will log in to the platform to see the content.
