Stand Against Racism 2018

Tuesday April 24, 2018; 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


Stand Against Racism is a signature campaign of YWCA USA, designed to build community among those who work for racial justice and raise awareness about the impact of institutional and structural racism.  YWCA is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities. Take a stand against racism with YWCA Berkeley/Oakland and hundreds of thousands of people across the country and join us this week during YWCA’s annual Stand Against Racism – and every day.
