YWCA Central Pennsylvania

Race Against Racism

Why is this race necessary?

We believe it starts with recognizing that racism has been part of our country since the beginning, and so is deeply embedded and pervasive in our systems, structures, and institutions. While none of us today are responsible for causing this, if we want a just, peaceful society it is our mutual responsibility to eliminate it.

This can only be accomplished through intentional and challenging anti-racism conversations and work. The Race Against Racism funds YWCA programs in Central Pennsylvania that offer support and direction to individuals and organizations seeking to provide peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
