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. 1000 people in Arizona will participate this year.
In Southern Arizona, we have joined with our partners in the Coalition for Racial Justice – Tucson Urban League, NAACP of Southern Arizona, Black Women’s Task Force and Our Family Services-Center for Community Dialogue – to sponsor a series of events on April 29th. Our sister organization, YWCA of Metropolitan Phoenix, is working with partners in Maricopa County, as well, making this a statewide effort.
