Stand Against Racism Until Justice Just Is

The Until Justice Just Is campaign runs throughout the month of April to raise awareness of systemic racism and how each of us can take action to advance justice.

Join us in reflecting on the impactful work we’ve done throughout April around “Until Justice Just Is.”  Check out our latest video highlighting the initiatives and efforts of YWCA Hartford Region Community Engagement & Advocacy in fostering equity and justice for all.  Together, we continue to strive for a world where justice is not just an aspiration, but a reality for everyone.

Thank you to those who were able to  join us for the thought-provoking screening of “Origin” and the powerful panel discussion that followed! Together, we explored important themes and fostered meaningful dialogue around issues of social justice and equity.  Your support to social change is truly inspiring.

YWCA Hartford Region invites you to take a stance with us during our annual Stand Against Racism initiative. Each year YWCAs around the country take the month of April to bring awareness to the issue of racism in our nation. This year we announce that SAR is being rebranded as Until Justice Just Is.

Thank you to all those that attended our Stand Against Racism, Until Justice Just Is event on April 27. We hope this experience empowered you to support racial justice in your community. We encourage you to use the information that was presented to confront racism.

Thank you to our speakers, Connecticut State Poet Laureate, Antoinette Brim-Bell, Hartford State’s Attorney, Sharmese L. Walcott and the artists (Andre Rochester, Aariyan Googe, Joel Cintron, David C. Jackson) who shared their work and perspective on justice. We must work collectively to root out inequity in our communities and in the institutions that compose our society and demand justice and equity.
