Each year YWCA Brooklyn participates in a dedicated week-long effort to take a #StandAgainstRacism by hosting events that bring together the community to engage in meaningful conversation. This year the campaign takes place from April 25-28.
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.
Our focus this year is on immigrant services. #NoHateNoFear. Immigrant Justice is Racial Justice. Immigrant Justice is among main topics discussed at this year’s Y.O.U. Conference for youth change makers.
Immigrant justice is integral to racial justice work. As civil and human rights continue to be eroded for immigrant communities and people of color, we stand united in solidarity with all immigrants, regardless of status, and communities of color facing the very real threat of racist and xenophobic attacks.
