Stand Against Racism Rally 2022

RSVP today:

Join YWCA National Capital Area on Saturday, April 23 from Noon-3 pm for a community rally on Freedom Plaza where we take a #Stand Against Racism.

The deep-seated systemic racism and inequities that disadvantage communities of color remain woven into the fabric of our institutions today—from civic engagement to economic development, from education to health care, and investments in communities. We must work collectively to root out inequity in our communities and in the institutions that compose our society, and demand justice and equity.

We Can’t Wait: Equity and Justice Now!

This year’s event will feature story sharing and calls to action from speakers & activists committed to civic engagement, racial justice and changing institutions, along with a community & civic engagement fair..

After the short program, we stand together and declare, enough is enough. Bring your rally signs. Bring your voice. Get registered to vote. Take a Stand Against Racism.

Need a rally sign? Bring your own sign or use one of ours! You can purchase #SignsAgainstRacism from our YW EmpowerShop or at our office, 2303 14th Street NW, Suite 100.

Note: We will be following COVID-19 regulations from the DC Department of Health. As such, we will follow social distance, masking and vaccine requirements. Masks & hand sanitizer will be available . If you are sick or experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you please stay home.
