2016 Stand Against Racism will take place April 28 – May 1st, 2016.
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.
This campaign is one part of our larger national strategy to fulfill our
mission of eliminating racism.
This year, our theme is On A Mission for Girls of Color! We will amplify the
national discussion about the impacts of institutional and structural racism
on the lives of girls of color. In 2015, over 750 locations hosted Stand
Against Racism events across 44 states!
