Living Our Mission

Since 1891, advancing racial equity has been part of the very DNA of YWCA Minneapolis.

As a trusted social justice organization, we have continued to lead the way in the field of racial equity; facilitating change and generating meaningful action in the workplace and the community.

YWCA Minneapolis is dedicated to promoting racial equity by partnering with individuals, organizations and businesses through racial justice training, Inc.cludeTM consulting, advocacy and education.

Advancing Widespread Change

YWCA Minneapolis’ Racial Justice Department lives out its mission by working within the community to eliminate inequities on interpersonal, institutional and systemic levels through a continuum of moving from knowledge, awareness and skills to action:

institutional change interpersonal change systemic change

YWCA Minneapolis' Racial Justice department is here to help you start or continue your journey.

Our programs will:
  • Teach skills that individuals can utilize as they begin or continue their journey against racism
  • Help build commitments to policies and practices that create long-term, sustainable change
  • Invite open dialogue and discussion toward the goal of mutual understanding
  • Raise awareness of oppression on the interpersonal, institution and systemic levels

We invite you to call or email us to ask about Racial Justice. And we encourage you to live the mission with us.
