Friday, April 25 is the YWCA’s annual Stand Against Racism.

Stand Against Racism is a national movement with the goal of bringing people together from all walks of life to raise awareness that racism still exists.

Here’s more information from the YWCA of Greenwich:

A YWCA national initiative that enlists the support of all local organizations (businesses, non-profits, religious institutions, schools, etc.) to become “participating sites” and develop their own Stand Against Racism on one particular day of the year. A stand can be anything from a single individual wearing a “Racism Hurts” button to a church sermon to a business breakfast to a structured school assembly

The methodology of the Stand Against Racism is to bring together like-minded organizations that share in our vision of eliminating racism and celebrating the richness of diversity. By inviting community organizations to partner with us, we maximize the outreach of this mission, attracting hundreds of thousands of participants.

Through our annual event, which takes place the last Friday of each April, and our Community Cohesion program, the YWCA’s Stand Against Racism addresses the root causes of racism and encourages conversations across diverse communities in the USA.
