YWCA’s Stand Against Racism is an annual event in April that brings together thousands of people across the country to raise awareness of structural and systemic racism, take collective action for equity, and build community in the fight for racial justice. This is a signature campaign of YWCA USA, and part of our mission to eliminate racism and empower women.
