Stand Against Racism Challenge

This year, we are excited to introduce the Stand Against Racism Challenge to help foster a virtual community of growth and learning around social, systemic, and institutional racial inequity. This YWCA USA national initiative, created in partnership with YWCA Greater Cleveland, is designed to create dedicated time and space to build more effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership. This opportunity is open to anyone and will provide participants with daily challenges such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experiences, and so much more.

During the month of April, participants will have the opportunity to learn and engage with challenges about racial inequity within the following topics:

  • Critical Race Theory
  • Reproductive Justice
  • Living Wage
  • Film and Television

Participation in this virtual community of growth helps us to discover how racial and social injustice impact our community, to connect with one another, and to identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.
