YWCA Stand Against Racism

Every year in April

YWCA Stand Against Racism 

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 campaign is one part of our larger national strategy to fulfill our mission of eliminating racism.

Voting rights and civic engagement are, and have always been, core components of racial justice work. As civil rights are eroded for communities of color, we must work to support full access and engagement for women and girls of color in the political process. Join us!
