YWCA Greenwich Takes A Stand Against Racism Outdoors on April 27

Greenwich Sentinel 21.April.2018: In its 10th year, the YWCA Greenwich’s Stand Against Racism Day will be just as meaningful as it was when it started a decade ago.

“The YWCA’s mission is to eliminate racism and empower women, so this is a signature event for us and for YWCAs across the country on the last week of April every year,” said YWCA President and CEO Mary Lee A. Kiernan. “It’s extremely important for us that we bring the community together, especially the community partners who work on community relations and inclusiveness throughout the town, to share stories, share support and reaffirm our commitment to that mission.”
 
Stand Against Racism is one of the signature events of the YWCA to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in the community.
 
The YWCA Greenwich’s Stand Against Racism event will bigger than ever. Valerie Shultz-Wilson, CEO of the Urban League of Southern Connecticut, will provide some remarks at the event.
