eliminating racism empowering women YWCA greater pittsburgh


Join YWCA Greater Pittsburgh's Center for Race and Gender Equity to take a Stand Against Racism on Friday, April 26, 2019.

This year we will address immigrant justice through the theme No Hate. No Fear. Immigrant Justice is Racial Justice. YWCA will host a panel discussion with Rosamaria Cristello of the Latino Community Center and Monica Ruiz of Casa San Jose, moderated by Carnegie Mellon University's Kenya Dworkin. Please see event details below

The violence perpetrated against immigrant communities and people of color has become increasingly visible and is at the forefront of conversations on race, citizenship, and criminalization. The current political environment emboldens anti-immigrant policies and attitudes just as it activates racist beliefs and behaviors. Our country and our communities must confront historical and current injustices.

The 2019 Stand Against Racism will unite our community in a bold demonstration that delivers a clear message: we are on a mission to eliminate racism. 

Date: Friday, April 26, 2019
Time: 11:30 A.M. Lunch and networking | 12:00 P.M. Panel discussion
Location: YWCA Greater Pittsburgh, 305 Wood Street, Downtown Pittsburgh
Included: Lunch, resource tables, networking
