Take a STAND AGAINST RACISM on April 27th

Save the date! Take a stand!

Friday, April 27 is the Stand Against Racism.

12 to 1 PM

22 Glen Street, New Britain, CT

The “Stand Against Racism” is a program of the YWCA aimed at raising awareness that racism still exists in our communities and that it can no longer be ignored or tolerated. 

The YWCA created the Stand Against Racism in order to combat the spread of hate and intolerance, and to honor and celebrate the richness of diversity.  In 2011, this event attracted over 2,200 partnering organizations that became participating sites by hosting local “stands.”

Over a quarter million individuals took a stand against racism by attending one of the participating sites. They committed themselves to a lifetime of promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all people in their community and in the world.

This powerful, unified, effort helped raised awareness that racism hurts everyone. Participants ranged from school-age children to elected officials, executives of large corporations, church leaders, and others. Racism affects everyone. 

YWCA New Britain seeks to bring people together across communities for one common goal—the elimination of racism—and we ask you to please make your voice heard by joining the Stand Against Racism.
