The YWCA says it is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
Those who attend will have the opportunity to sign the YWCA USA pledge and take a stand to show Jamestown, and the greater community, is committed to promoting unity and inclusion.
Officials say the Social Justice Committee works to advocate for women, children, and families and educates others to understand the importance of racial and gender equality. The members of the committee will plan events and ways to promote inclusion in our community.
Today’s event begins at 12:15 p.m. and is open to the public. It is one of many held by YWCAs across the country to Stand Against Racism from April 25-28.
