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 our larger national strategy to fulfill our mission of eliminating racism.
Our guest speaker will be Austin Channing Brown. With more than a decade of studying and writing on racial identity, Austin possesses tremendous dexterity and nimbleness for speaking about the complexities of race in America. Without sacrificing truth, she talks about race, pain, systemic inequality and the need for understanding, engagement, and justice from a Christ-like, kingdom perspective. And in the end, she offers hope and affirmation that racial reconciliation — though it be messy, though it be difficult, though it be lifelong — is so, so worth it.
