Racial Justice Initiatives

Eliminating Racism is a core element of YWCA’s mission. YWCA Greenwich is committed to creating programs and hosting events that bring the community together to focus on a range of racial justice issues.

By engaging with governmental and community organizations and participating in mission-focused programs, the YWCA plays an active role in strengthening our community. In addition, each January, we hold an event on a current racial justice challenge to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and each April, we participate in the signature campaign of YWCA USA, Stand Against Racism, 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.
