YWCA Launches Stand Against Racism

First published in the April 2 print issue of the Glendale News Press.

Starting on Monday, April 4, an estimated 60,000 people will join the YWCA’s 21-day Stand Against Racism Challenge.
This year’s national curriculum, designed by the YWCA and Saybrook University social justice experts, will engage participants in content and discussions around critical race theory, reproductive justice, financial inclusion and representation in film and media.
Following its assistance in drafting Pasadena’s resolution to apologize for racist “sundown” laws in the city’s past, the YWCA Glendale and Pasadena launched the first Stand Against Racism Challenge last year to “meet the needs of community members seeking education about anti-racism and anti-bias practices,” the organization said in a statement.
Based on survey data developed by Saybrook University, 82% of participants said they felt inspired to lead or join racial justice efforts in their communities and 81% reported the challenge changed their way of thinking.
