You can stay engaged with YWCA’s efforts to eliminate racism all year long by supporting our legislative advocacy efforts, connecting with us on social media using #StandAgainstRacism, and by working for racial justice in your community.

We are pleased to announce that our annual racial justice awareness campaign will begin on the YWCA National Day of Commitment to Eliminate Racism, Thursday April 28, 2016 and go through Sunday, May 1, 2016 next year.

Stand Against Racism was founded by YWCA Trenton and YWCA Princeton in 2007. In 2015 it became a signature campaign of YWCA USA.
