Join us at a free event as we take a stand against racism and violence. Together, we will examine ways to dismantle common stereotypes and explore the intersections of bias, discrimination, and oppression. Afterwards, you are invited to take part in a five step action plan to increase safety and healing in our community.

Stand Against Racism is hosted annually as part of YWCA’s national strategy to eliminate racism. To learn more about the national program, please visit StandAgainstRacism.org.
