Stand Against Racism Week

A- A A+

YWCA is on a mission to Stand Against Racism!

No Hate. No Fear.
Creating Equity in Our Community

We take a Stand Against Racism every day by raising awareness about the impact of institutional and structural racism and by building community among those who work for racial justice.

Stand Against Racism provides the opportunity for communities across the United States to find an issue or cause that inspires them to take a #StandAgainstRacism and to unite their voices to educate, advocate, and promote racial justice.

YWCA of Syracuse and Onondaga County invites you to become a partner to build an equitable, inclusive City and County!

Join us for Stand Against Racism, a national YWCA campaign from April 19 – 23, to create a virtual movement as we celebrate the Day of Commitment to Eliminate Racism and celebrate Champion of Diversity Awardees!

Stand Against Racism provides the opportunity for communities across the United States to find an issue or cause that inspires them to take a #StandAgainstRacism and to unite their voices to educate, advocate, and promote racial justice. Most importantly, we invite you to explore how the tools of civic engagement can advance the work of justice in your community and empower people of color.

As we gear up for Stand Against Racism week we can’t stress enough the importance of civic engagement in racial justice work. Voting rights and civic engagement are, and have always been, core components of racial justice. As civil rights continue to be eroded for communities of color, it is more important than ever to support full access and engagement for marginalized communities, especially women and girls of color, in the political process.

Our collective efforts can root out injustice, transform institutions, and create a world that sees women, girls, and people of color the way we do: Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable.
