Take a Stand Against Racism on April 25!


By Katie Stanton
YWCA USA Social Media Manager

Eliminating racism is at the center of the YWCA’s mission. That’s why each year local associations participate in Stand Against Racism, a campaign and ongoing public conversation about race and equality. On April 25, the YWCA USA will support our local associations and their activities to unite to Stand Against Racism.

Get involved! Participate in YWCA USA’s Stand Against Racism blog carnival.
This year, we want to know: How are the lives of women impacted by racism?

The YWCA USA will collect the blog posts and publish them throughout the day on April 25, the official day to take a Stand Against Racism. We will share the posts on Twitter using the hashtag #standagainstracism, and we welcome you to share on Twitter, too!
