Stand Against Racism

Stand Against Racism, taking place annually  during the last week in April,  is a signature campaign of YWCA USA to build community among those who work for racial justice and to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in our communities. This campaign is one part of our larger national strategy to fulfill our mission of eliminating racism.

No Hate. No Fear.

Stand Against Racism

On April 26, 2019 the YWCA White Plains & Central Westchester will host its annual Stand Against Racism event. This years theme: No Hate No Fear – Immigrant Justice is Racial Justice aims to intentionally further the conversation around immigrant rights and how we must fight for their equality within our community. Joined by an impressive panel of experts, our Stand Against Racism event will allow the audience to both listen and participate and to create a call of action for our county to truly take a Stand Against Racism.
