11th Annual Stand Against Racism
Race, Media, and Gender

Join the YWCA and Town Hall Seattle for an afternoon discussion about the harmful effects of institutional and structural racism in our community. This virtual event is FREE but registration is requested.

This year’s theme is Race, Media, and Gender and will feature a discussion amongst panelists Naomi Ishisaka (The Seattle Times), Marcus Harrison Green (South Seattle Emerald), and Florangela Davila (KNKX). We will also showcase two local media outlets, The Seattle Medium and Converge Media, in a video about Black media in Seattle’s past, present, and future.

This year marks the 11th anniversary of the Stand Against Racism event in Seattle, hosted by the People of Color Executive Council (POCEC) of YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish.
