Does standing together for 15 minutes eliminate racism? Of course not. But it does allow us to see the broad range of people in this community who are committed to working toward that goal. We need each other's support to stay in the struggle, to have the hard conversations, to do the self-assessment necessary to transform ourselves and our community.
Last year, 50 local organizations (over 2,000 people!) participated in the Stand.
YWCA Evanston/North Shore 2015 STAND AGAINST RACISM
Friday, April 24
The Stand Against Racism™ is a movement of the YWCA that aims to raise community awareness of the effects of racism on all of us. We encourage schools, business, faith groups, civic & community groups, and neighbors to use the month of April to discuss issues of race, attend or plan a program, read up on the issue; then be part of for our public stand along major streets in Evanston and Skokie/Niles Township.
