National March for Racial Justice
September 30, 2017 @ 6:00 am - 9:00 pm$36.98
YWCA Lancaster is proud to lead our local communities in the National March for Racial Justice (RacialJusticeMarch.093017) on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, September 30.
The March takes place from 10 a.m.–1 p.m. Our charter bus will leave promptly at 6 a.m. from Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC), 1641 Old Philadelphia Pike, Lancaster, and will return at approximately 9 p.m., as we will stop for dinner on the way back.
September 30 marks the anniversary one of the deadliest massacres in the history of the U.S.—the Elaine Massacre in Arkansas. The Massacre would end in the murder of 237 (up to 300) Black men, women, and children and 5 White men; the unjust imprisonment of 122; and the unjust execution of 12. We honor those lives.
