Join the YWCA in taking a Stand Against Racism in April.
No Hate. No Fear.
Immigration Justice is Racial Justice.

Stand Against Racism 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 YWCA’s larger national strategy to fulfill our mission of eliminating racism.

The Pledge

Take The Pledge (http://www.standagainstracism.org/pledge) to be mindful of the issues facing our community, challenge our own biases, educate ourselves on differences, and act to make a difference.


The Stand

Join us in a peaceful stand of unity this April.  This demonstration shows our neighbors that as a community, we are joining together to continuously work to eliminate racism. 


The Support

In addition, we encourage departments, organizations, businesses, friends and family to take a selfie in the Y’s signature color (orange) or in front of our selfie board at The Stand, and post it to social media with #StandAgainstRacism #YWCA. Make sure to state WHY or HOW you are taking a stand against racism.

Please send questions about the 2020 Stand Against Racism to: Angela Merrick at amerrick@iastate.edu
