Background:
The YWCA has asked organizations, corporations, schools, hospitals, houses of worship and government agencies in Westmoreland County to be participating sites for the “Stand Against Racism.” The goal of the event is to raise awareness that racism still exists in our community and that it can no longer be ignored or tolerated.

On April 30, the YWCA of Westmoreland County, in partnership with over 70 YWCAs throughout the nation, will be working with approximately 1,500 organizations that will cumulatively attract 200,000 individuals.

Stand Against Racism is a movement initiated by the YWCA in 2008. The objective of the movement is to bring organizations closer together to eliminate racism.
