Stand Against Racism Event in Uptown

Stand Against Racism is a signature campaign of YWCA USA to build community among those who work for racial justice and to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in our communities. This campaign is one part of YWCA’s larger national strategy to fulfill our mission of eliminating racism.

This year’s theme, ‘No Hate. No Fear.’, tackles Immigration and Race. Join YWCA Central Carolinas as we celebrate our diverse community on April 26 from 11am-1pm on the corner of Trade and Tryon. Performances include a Chinese Lion Dance, Capoeria from the NC Brazilian Arts Project, a Kickboxing demo, Native American Drum Circle, and spoken word. The League of Women Voters will have a table to register individuals to vote and The Charlotte Women’s March will provide our community with information around immigration and how it’s affecting the women and children that are left in the states once their husbands are deported.

In addition, YWCA will be partnering with CLT250, which is a celebration in honor of when Charlotte was founded 250 years ago. In celebration of CLT 250, YWCA will be collecting 250 “Stand Against Racism” Pledges during the event. You can also sign the pledge on our website!
