YWCA has been at the forefront in the fight for racial justice nationwide. We are committed to taking a stand to eliminate racism and promote inclusion and tolerance for all. Keep reading and join our efforts to root out racism wherever it’s found.

Stand Against Racism

Each April we join our sister associations from across the country to Stand Against Racism. As a safe space to hold conversations on race, equity, and inclusion, Stand Against Racism provides a place for us to unite our voices to educate, advocate, and promote racial justice. We will be announcing activities and events soon. Check back often for more details and registration information.

Race, Equity, and Inclusion

YWCA Metropolitan Phoenix is committed to being the safe space where the necessary and courageous conversations about race, equity, and inclusion can and do occur. We know that by raising consciousness and awareness of how race impacts issues that impact Phoenix, we can make our community stronger. By serving as a convener for these substantive and vital dialogues, we are shining a light on both the amazing work that is being done to make our neighborhoods more equitable, and highlight the gaps to full inclusion that remain. While we know that we don’t have all the answers, we do know that a society that is equitable for all will require all of us to do something and believe in the power of the collective good to make that happen.
