WHAT'S NEW AT THE YW
WOMEN OF COLOR LEADING CHANGE
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON,
HERE'S WHAT'S COMING UP
STAND AGAINST RACISM 
APRIL 2017
This April marks YWCA's 10th annual Stand Against Racism, and this year, we are focused on a very important theme: Women of Color Leading Change. Despite outpacing other groups in college education, leading social progress since the very beginning, and often being the primary breadwinner in their households, women of color are consistently underrepresented in positions of leadership. But we know that when women of color lead, positive change happens and everyone is lifted up! 

Join us and take a Stand Against Racism. You can register, take the Stand Against Racism pledge, and find an event near you-all for free! Learn more at  http://standagainstracism.org/
