Stand Against Racism is a four-day call-to-action to raise awareness against racism. YWCA Northeast Indiana is asking the community to join with us by holding events to show unity in the fight for racial justice.
In conjunction with this movement, YWCA Northeast Indiana in partnership with Leadership Fort Wayne’s Us Together Project Team will host a panel discussion on Civic Engagement. Women of color are underrepresented at all levels of government. Our panel will discuss how to have your voice heard and be involved in change in the community.
The event will be held from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., April 26, at the Public Safety Academy, 7602 Patriot Xing, Fort Wayne, IN 46816. For more information, please contact Ellie Bogue, (260) 424-4908 ext. 232 or ebogue.
Organizations, businesses, and schools, interested in doing their own events, between April 26-29, should register their events at www.standagainstracism.org. Please see the attached flyer for more details on what people can do to stand against racism.
