Stand Against Racism Until Justice Just Is
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.
We invite you to participate in YWCA’s Racial Justice Challenge. The Racial Justice Challenge is your chance to address systemic racism head on. Build your own tools for dealing with issues of race, power, privilege and leadership. Register for the YWCA Racial Justice Challenge today!
