STAND Against Racism: Sparking Change Virtual Experience April 14th 9:00AM-2:00PM
YWCA is committed to harnessing the collective power of our community in service to the mission of equity for all. The STAND Against Racism: Sparking Change Virtual Experience was developed in partnership with Ibero-American Action League, Urban League and United Way with support from Action for a Better Community, Coordinated Care Services and Sara Taylor.
Building off United Way of Greater Rochester’s 21-Day Equity Challenge, STAND seeks to continue the fight to eliminate racism in our community by providing actionable items to extend community participation in meaningful action in the fight for equity.
Attendees will continue their experience post-event through an innovative “Spark Partner” concept built off the YWCA Person2Person curriculum.
