Create a Community Without Racism

Eliminating racism is fundamental to YWCA Hartford Region’s mission. We believe the only way to succeed is to work together throughout the community to fight for racial and social justice and stand together against systemic racism.

Blatant and subtle forms of racism and bigotry have no place in our society. YWCA Hartford Region is committed to ensuring racial, social and gender equity prevail in all we do. Every day, we work to strengthen our community through providing mission-driven programs, organizing events, including Stand Against Racism, engaging local, state, and federal officials and community partners to raise awareness and build a community without racism.

Join Us Today! We Need You To Be Part of the Solution.
