About the Stand Against Racism:

Every year in April, the Stand Against Racism brings together YWCA and our partners across the country to raise awareness of institutional and structural racism, and build community among people working for racial justice.

Stand Against Racism is a signature campaign of YWCA USA, and part of our larger strategy to fulfill YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism and empowering women. To learn more, please visit standagainstracism.org.
