Event Description

April 10, 2013 Updated Apr 10, 2013 at 10:59 AM EDT

Stand Against Racism is a YWCA sponsored movement that aims to eliminate racism by raising awareness through its annual event. This annual event takes place the last Friday of each April (Friday, April 26, 2013) and addresses the root causes of racism and encourages conversations across diverse communities in the USA.
This year, YWCA Northeast Indiana will be hosting a public stand at our 1610 Spy Run Avenue office in Fort Wayne on Friday, April 26. The public is invited to join us beginning at 11:00 am as we create posters encouraging others to “Stand Against Racism”. We will then go out on the sidewalks along Spy Run Avenue from noon to 1:00 pm and encourage passing drivers to honk and take a stand themselves.

For the benefit of other organizations in our area, YWCA Northeast Indiana is the coordinating agency and we're looking for schools, churches, and businesses to join in our stand against racism by becoming a participating site for 2013. This could take the form of changing the marquee in front of your building, hosting a public discussion or movie screening, making a public stand like the one pictured above! All participating sites will receive free materials to help make their stand possible - any degree of involvement makes an impact!
