Stand Against Racism

Every year in April, YWCAs all over the country take a Stand Against Racism. Show that you’re taking a stand by downloading and printing this sign. Then post a selfie with #standagainstracism.

If you missed the YWCA 21-Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge 2021 in March, click here for a catalog of the 21-Day Challenge content. You’ll find videos, articles, podcasts, and more to help you build your knowledge of issues around racial equity.

Another way to take a stand is by registering for one or more of the online events below.
