YWCA announces “Stand Against Racism” event

Press Release


Save the Date for the 2014 Stand Against Racism This April!

The YWCA’s Stand Against Racism, which happens annually in April, is a partnership of YWCA Associations throughout the country with the goal of bringing people together to raise awareness that racism still exists and that it can no longer be ignored or tolerated.

In 2013, approximately 5,000 people attended Stand Against Racism events in Buncombe County!

-Learn from the experiences of Stand Against Racism Committee members and participating organizations from previous years.
-Hear about resources available from the YWCA
-Meet other individuals and organizations who are interested in partnering on events for the 2014 YWCA’s Stand Against Racism
-Brainstorm new event ideas
-Sign up to receive more information and to become an official 2014 Stand Against Racism participant
